Teams must have an adult with them when at the sports park to supervise and help with getting into their kayaks.  If you can offer any help to manage/coach a team this year, please indicate on the registration form.  A roster system will be organised to share the supervision if we have no volunteers.

As proud parents and New Zealanders we love our sports and are keen for our students to do the best they can.Players and parents of all TIS sports will be asked to agree to our 2024 sports code of conduct. Please read and discuss with your child and your extended family
