2021 SANCTIONING of WAIKATO SECONDARY SCHOOL SPORT EVENTS
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 WSSSA “Event”, 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 2021 season.
