Event Sanctioning



WSSSA is responsible to the Central North Island Secondary School Principals Association [CNISSPA] to provide them with guidance and recommendations around Waikato Secondary School Sports Events.  Dependent upon context  a WSSSAEvent”, is an interchangeable term  for all regular “Sports”, “Tournaments”, “Leagues” and “Competitions”


Event Sanctioning – Purpose:

  • To ensure quality and safe sporting opportunities are available to our youth
  • To enable better planning from WSSSA, schools and sports codes
  • To gain an overview of secondary school sports events for promotion and avoid clashes of codes, major events and academic dates
  • To ensure participation opportunities are accessible and cost-effective to maximise engagement


Due to this, we request that organisers of a secondary school sporting events provide the WSSSA with proposed dates, days and duration of play, information regarding Health & Safety as appropriate for key venues and budgeted costs to students/schools as individuals or teams for the events for the 2022 season.

Once approved by the WSSSA Executive will place on the Official WSSSA calendar placed on this website.
