Volunteer Awareness Week is happening from June 16 to 23 and Sport Waikato wishes to thank the many volunteers that help local sport and recreation. Please make sure to recognise community volunteers, who help you and your organisation, for the amazing work they do.
Sport Waikato is calling volunteers involved in local sport our ‘sport makers’. We are launching a ‘Sport Maker’ recognition campaign in July with the aim of highlighting individuals who go unnoticed for their successful sporting voluntary work.
From the uniform washers to coaches, these community peo- ple need to be recognised and we’ve developed a plan on how to do this throughout the year.
During the past five weeks teams from Matamata College, Putaruru College, Tokoroa High School, Forest View High School, Tauhara College and Taupo-nui-aTia have competed in an Open A and Junior A netball competition at the South Waikato Sport and Events Cen- tre. It has been an awesome competition with great netball and fantastic crowds watching the games. Games were played on a Tuesday from 5pm to 8pm.
In the Open A competition, Tokoroa High School were very competitive and awesome to watch, with an unbeaten record. Matamata College were runners-up with a loss to Tokoroa 36-31 – a great spectacle! The schools are hoping to have another game before the end of the season.
In the junior competition, well done to Taupo-nui-a-Tia Junior A which also finished the round robin unbeaten. They were a very polished team and a pleasure to watch, runners-up were Matamata 9A, this team shows big promise. A copy of the complete results will be posted on the Tokoroa Netball website, or a copy will be available at the Sport Waikato office, 43 Swanston St.
We hope this competition will continue next year and I would like to thank Maria Te Kanawa for her help in getting this competition up and running and her support throughout the 5 weeks.
Big thanks to the umpires who turned up every week, I couldn’t have done it without you.
