Winter Tournament Week

Please see below the latest information from School Sport NZ:


School Sport NZ, in conjunction with its sport partners, regretfully announce the cancellation of all sanctioned events on its calendar through to Monday 6th September 2021. This includes all events scheduled within the Winter Tournament Week window.

School Sport NZ will review the viability of future events on the School Sport NZ calendar on Wednesday 1st September, or as appropriate with changes to alert level protocols.
School Sport NZ is acutely aware of the impact this decision will have on many of our Rangatahi, particularly those senior students who face the possibility of having events cancelled for a second successive year.
Prioritising a safe return to sport and recreation must be our collective goal. Sport and physical recreation will play a significant role in supporting the wellbeing of our Rangatahi through this difficult period the entire country finds itself in. This will be more readily achieved at a local and regional level, rather than at a national level. School Sport NZ will work collaboratively with schools, school sport offices, National Sport Organisations, Regional Sport Trusts, and Sport NZ, to ensure our Rangatahi can reengage with sport as soon as possible.
