Farewell and many thanks

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport -

Good­bye and thank you.

I’d like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank all the fan­tas­tic peo­ple I have met from clubs, schools and com­mu­nity groups who make sport and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity hap­pen in the Mata­mata Pi­ako Dis­trict.

I am leav­ing my role with Sport Waikato as the Dis­trict Co­or­di­na­tor for Mata­mata Pi­ako af­ter 12 very en­joy­able years to take up a role with Net­ball Waikato Bay of Plenty Zone as the com­mu­nity net­ball man­ager.

Mata­mata Pi­ako is blessed with not only great fa­cil­i­ties, a sup­port­ive coun­cil and some amaz­ing nat­u­ral re­sources but also hard work­ing, tal­ented sport mak­ers who en­sure there is high qual­ity sport for our com­mu­nity.

It has been a plea­sure work­ing with you all.

Re­cruit­ment is un­der way for my re­place­ment with a re­al­is­tic start­ing date some­time mid to late Septem­ber.

In the mean­time any ur­gent mat­ters can be re­ferred to the Sport Waikato head of­fice on (07) 858 5388.

Ki­wiS­port Kick Fund­ing Avail­able


Sport Waikato in con­junc­tion with Sport NZ is pleased to an­nounce that ap­pli­ca­tions are now be­ing called for Round 2 of Ki­wiS­port Kick Start Fund­ing for 2013.

If you have a new sport­ing pro­ject that will give the op­por­tu­nity for more stu­dents aged 5-18 to be in­volved in or­gan­ised sport, we want to hear from you.

Schools, clubs and reg­is­tered or­gan­i­sa­tions can ap­ply to the Kick Start Fund for projects to com­mence be­tween Oc­to­ber 1 2013 and March 31 2014.

Three lev­els of fund­ing are avail­able de­pend­ing on the size and im­pact of the pro­ject.

There are five for $1500, five for $3000 and three for $5000 fund­ing amounts to be al­lo­cated through­out the greater Waikato re­gion.

Ap­pli­ca­tions must look at con­tribut­ing a min­i­mum of 20 per cent to the to­tal cost of the pro­ject in cash or in kind.

Ap­pli­ca­tions close Au­gust 30 2013 with suc­cess­ful ap­pli­ca­tions re­ceiv­ing fund­ing on Oc­to­ber 20 2013.
