The purpose of OJSC is to provide an opportunity for children in Oakura and the surrounding Coastal area to play sport for an Oakura based club, whether they attend Oakura School or any other primary, intermediate or secondary school.
OJSC is closely aligned to Oakura School however it is a stand-alone not-for-profit Incorporated Society that operates independently.
OJSC offers sporting opportunities where no other sporting club offers the same sport in the local district, eg OJSC does not offer rugby as Kaitake Rugby Club manages rugby in the district, the same applies to tennis, athletics, bowls, surfing and others.
How does OJSC work?
A committee of volunteers manage OJSC. The committee usually meet once per term.
The Sports Coordinators are responsible for organising their respective sport – submitting notifications of when registrations are open, organising teams in a fair and practical way, collecting fees and spending the fees prudently, assigning coaches and generally ensuring that the players are happy and are enjoying their sporting adventures.
All the players in the teams are considered Junior Members of OJSC.
The parents/caregivers listed on the registration form of the Junior members are considered Senior Members of OJSC.
