Entries Open – 2018 Wellington SS Waka Ama Sprint Champs

Hoe Tonga Pacifica Waka Ama Association, in association with College Sport Wellington, is pleased to offer secondary school students the opportunity to participate in our region’s Secondary School Sprint Champs.  The event will take place on Saturday 10 March 2018, at Onepoto Reserve in Titahi Bay, Porirua.  Entries are open online now via the College Sport Wellington entries portal EnterNOW.

We recognise the effort schools undertake to ensure all students are given the opportunity to participate in sport at any level and we believe Waka Ama delivers an experience of a lifetime. We wish to acknowledge those involved in delivering programmes to students, particularly clubs who provide access to equipment and coaching, and of course the many parents and teachers who offer their support and guidance.

It is our hope that students enjoy this unique experience and consider joining one of the many clubs within our region to further develop their skills and engage fully in the many different aspects Waka Ama provides. Waka Ama provides individuals with the opportunity to develop connections to our community, develop leadership skills and adopt a healthier lifestyle and sense of hauora or wellbeing.
Our Secondary Schools regatta has increased in numbers every year and its success is largely due to our team of dedicated volunteers. Hoe Tonga invites you and your supporters to be part of this success while enjoying all the excitement waka ama brings to our community.
