Endeavour School

School Sports Updates/ Changes

Please note: All sports are on hold at this stage and we will continue to update parents as we learn more around Alert Level 2 and what this might look like.

Please find school sports updates and useful links below to sports organisations and events that may be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We will update this page with more information as it comes up. If you know of any other useful links please send these through to Lucy on reception@endeavour.school.nz

Latest update (11/05/2020) from Our Endeavour School Sports Coordinator:

For current COVID19 sports updates, please visit the Sports New Zealand website through this link: https://sportnz.cwp.govt.nz/covid-19/alert-level-information/

"Please be aware that if sports do resume at Alert Level 2, this will take some time to set up as a large focus will be on setting up systems to ensure effective hygiene practices, contact tracing, and maintaining less than 100 at a venue at one given time.
We will wait for direction from all sports codes as to how this will look and will be in touch as we learn more. We thank you for your patience and understanding with this."


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.
