South Waikato News - - SPORT -

The Toko­roa Pa­cific Sharks are about to em­bark on an am­bi­tious jour­ney to cre­ate a sus­tain­able path­way for achieve­ment in Rugby League.

Their re­cruit­ment drive will kick off ini­tia­tives for the 2013 sea­son. On Fri­day, from 4pm, there will be a fun night at the Me­mo­rial sports ground. Reg­is­tra­tion, free give­aways, free prizes, free sausage siz­zle and a whole lot of fun is the call for the day. And that’s not all; play­ers will be tested for over­all skills with as­sess­ment sta­tions. Kiwi Sport Rugby League Of­fi­cer Gary Peachem will be search­ing for po­ten­tial NRL or Kiwi play­ers.

Also sup­port­ing the day is the South Waikato Pa­cific Is­land Com­mu­nity Ser­vices, Raukawa Health Ser­vices and the Toko­roa Coun­cil of So­cial Ser­vices, who will be pro­mot­ing their ser­vices for all par­ents and sup­port­ers.

Pa­cific Sharks fund­ing co-or­di­na­tor, Rangi Tunupopo and her band of club sup­port­ers, have a pas­sion for the play­ers and cre­at­ing a pos­i­tive path­way for a brighter fu­ture.

‘‘We can see the po­ten­tial and abil­ity at our club’’, Tunupopo said. ‘‘If we match this po­ten­tial and de­velop a way for­ward, we can and will make dreams come true.’’

The club boasts 200 ju­niors and 50 se­nior play­ers, and fund­ing will be a ma­jor fac­tor in pro­gress­ing goals.

The co-or­di­na­tion of club re­sources will play a vi­tal role in the club devel­op­ment, with in­put from mem­bers who have the skilled ap­ti­tude to add val­ued in­put at a board level.
