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.
