Y Ran­gi­tahi Youth Day Out project man­ager Jamie McEwan said teams would com­pete in touch and dodge­ball.

‘ ‘ Any­one from the com­mu­nity can play. It is a youth event – that’s peo­ple from 12 to 24 years old,’’ he said. ‘‘It is some­thing we wanted to do for the com­mu­nity. We also wanted to pro­mote the youth cen­tre.’’

‘‘For the sports there are spot prizes, in­clud­ing one for over­all best team and wack­i­est dressed.’’

Y Ran­gi­tahi is a 10-week pro­gramme for youth from Pu­taruru and in­volves in­di­vid­ual devel­op­ment projects.
