Kia ora Whanau,

Thank you to all of the families who got in contact for touch rugby this year. We held a meeting at school and an astounding amount of children have put their names down, this is brilliant to see.

All of the children have been placed in teams ranging from Under 6s through to under 12s. So far we have Melissa coaching two teams but we still require 5 more coaches. If you are keen to get involved please contact me at [email protected]

Please look at which team your child is in and if a coach is still required, please help rally around so that we can enter all of the kids.

Venue: Waitara High School and Manukorihi Fields

Time: Thursday from 3:30-6:00pm (however week 7 will be shifted to Thursday Dec 3rd as the module will be away at NZ Secondary School Nationals).

Game Times:

Round 1- Under 6 and under 8 kicks off at 3:30pm

Round 2- Under 10 kicks off at 3:55pm

Round 3- Under 12 kicks off at 4:25pm

Cancellations due to weather will be made by 2pm on Thursday

Touch Rugby fees this season are $14 per child, these will need to be paid to the school office by Friday 18th October. Please indicate on payment your child’s name and team.  The turn around is very quick this year with games starting on October 24th. We are going to have to be strict around no pay no game. I am on school camp with the Year 6 students so please pay directly to the office.

Key Dates

Thursday 18th October: Coaching tips and drills (all parent and new coaches welcome).
