Mission Statement -

To provide financial and administrative support to all Wairarapa College Sports Teams, Individuals, Coaches, Managers and Administrators in order to develop and maintain the highest level of sporting opportunities and standards.


The Wairarapa College Sports Foundation originally came about early in 2014 after discussions between some parents and staff members of the college. They were so passionate about Sport at Wairarapa College that they knew they wanted to do more. After a few discussions and ideas about how to get started, a group of dedicated people put themselves together and became a Charitable Trust.

VANS

We purchased 2 vans in 2016 which without the support of the following parties would not have been possible:

Wairarapa College Trust

Wairarapa College PTA

Wairarapa College Hostel (Poto College House)

Wairarapa College BOT

Trust House

Body Works Panel & Paint (Greytown)

WBS

Northco Insurance

These vans are for all School use and can also be hired to external parties.  Please just contact the Wairarapa School Office and ask for Mike Geenty, who takes care of all van bookings.

PRE-SEASON TOURNAMENT

We have for the past 5 years run a Pre-Season Winter Tournament in the March/April school holidays.  The following codes participate in this event over a 2 day tournament:

Girls and Boys 1st and 2nd Hockey

Girls and Boys 1st Football

Netball

This is supported by the Wairarapa College Hostel, Poto College House, which accomodates and feeds all our visiting teams.

Through raising funds via this tournament we are able to support our Winter Tournament teams by helping fund the Coaches' and Managers' costs to go away on Tournament week.

Our aim is to continue to grow this tournament. It is a fantastic opportunity for coaches to see their potential team in action and for them to make final selection decisions.It provides a good kick start for our own school teams, as well as visitors, at the beginning of their season.


Sports Equipment and Tools

With the ongoing support of the Trust House we have been chipping away at providing tools and equipment for our Coaches and Managers of all codes and all grades.  The cones, the bibs, the balls all need replacing over time and this we have started with the support of our Sports Co-ordinator, Adrian Sorrell, managing this project.

We have also registered for a handy coaching tool for all coaches, if you require information on this please contact Adrian direct to access this.
