Latest update (11/05/2020) from Our Endeavour School Sports Coordinator:
Winter Sport at Endeavour School
Please read the latest update from School Sports NZ announcing that due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, the national calendar of sanctioned events will be further suspended until 20 July, the beginning of Term 3. This will have an immediate impact on all Winter sports.
We support School Sport NZ in recognising the importance of returning to normal activities as soon as possible and the crucial role that school sport plays in contributing to the physical, mental and social health of our young people, while also supporting Government guidelines in keeping NZ and our people safe from Covid-19.
What this will look like for local competitions in the Waikato will depend on how quickly we move down the Alert Levels. Certain Sports will be able to return more quickly due to their non-contact nature, whereas most winter sports do involve contact therefore this could take longer. More information regarding possible start dates will be communicated to you as they are released by Sports Associations
With the move from Level 4 to Level 3 not allowing for any change to the rules around social contact outside of your bubble, it does open up various recreational activities. Please observe these regulations and keep yourself and your bubble safe.
Sport as we would normally know it at this time of year currently looks vastly different. Using this time to prepare individually for the upcoming winter sports season is important for a multitude of reasons. Mainly it provides a focus on something other than being stuck inside; getting outside can give you a physical and mental release as well as building your overall Hauora whilst at the same time as building a base of fitness for your chosen sport.
