King's High School have a growing regional and national reputation. Our students have access to an on-site artificial training surface enabling students to develop their skill level under the guidance of King's teacher and former Black Stick, Ross.
Teams compete in the local Secondary School Competition at the McMillan Centre. This covers all grades, and being held after school every Tuesday, allows players to play other sports during the weekend. The 1st XI team also plays interschools against Otago Boys', Waitaki Boys', and Southland Boys' High Schools. The junior team is part of the elite, invitation only, Tanner Cup. This is held in the North Island and we are one of only two South Island schools invited.
King's has produced many Otago Representatives over the years. The most prominent Old Boy is Darren Smith, who played over 200 games for the Black Sticks, and recently held a role as the Black Sticks' assistant coach. In recent years a number of former pupils have represented Southern in the National Hockey League.
