Note from Sport Tasman 15 Nov 2016

A quick update from Sport Tasman - we hope all those affected by the earthquakes are getting through well and that the community spirit is kicking in! Here in Kaikoura we have a few challenges with power, internet, roads etc but people mostly managing well.
It will be quite a slow process getting schools, pools etc assessed and running again. We will be reassessing what programmes we can run, as that information becomes available. The Lions Pool itself looks very compromised but we will see what the experts say!
Kim can be contacted on 029 773 1524 - texting is best to conserve battery power.
Keep safe everyone.

Sport Tasman getting “Kaikoura on the move!”

Haere mai to the Kaikoura Community web-page where you will hopefully finds lots of ideas for getting “More People, More Active, And More Often!”   Ko...ahau Kim Boyce-Campbell is the new Community Sport Adviser for the district. Kim's role is to look at how the community in Kaikoura can be encouraged to get active and stay active.

Upcoming events in Kaikoura:

Throughout the year many events, activities, projects and programmes are lead, supported or delivered in and around Kaikoura by Sport Tasman. The major events over the summer lead by Sport Tasman are:

Kids Active Holiday Programme:

A lot of work has been done in the last 3 years to create a Kaikoura Kids Active Holiday Programme for the town to be proud of and get the kids active and learning during the holidays. Spring programme runs from Monday 3rd October to Friday 7th October 2016. Enrolment Form. We have been recognised for our efforts and have recently earned OSCAR accreditation (Out of School Care and Recreation).  This means a higher quality programme with great activities and high levels of safety.  Working subsidies are available to cover some or all of the user fees if you’re a working parent that meets the criteria.  It’s best to apply early to get your subsidy well before the holidays start.  Call Heartlands to find out more information on subsidies on 03 909 9292. 

Kaikoura’s very own Sports Trailer is ready for action! 
Some of you may have seen this fun filled trailer about town or been lucky enough to use it already.  It's jam packed with a myriad of sporting toys, from pre-school toys, to balls, bats, hockey kits, fitness gear and more.  Over the holidays it can be hired privately for birthday parties/special occasions, or community events.  Get in touch with Kim to find out more.

Kaikoura Lions Pool:

The Pool is now CLOSED.

Kaikoura Summer Explorer - Jan to March 2017

This is a FREE event you can be part of....get to see all the local walks in Kaikoura and enjoy the wonderful scenery it has to offer while answering questions along the way. A great way to get out and about this summer. Booklets available from Kaikoura iSite or download 2016 booklet here.



Thank a Sport Maker:

The community is full of volunteers of every capacity – from coaches to uniform washers and orange cutters.  These are the people that need recognition, they are the people that keep our sport community going.  Please go on and place your vote for them – You are able to nominate more than one person.



A database of all the sports clubs and recreational activities going on in Kaikoura has been created.  This information can be found on the Sport Tasman website ‘Find a Sport' or the Kaikoura District council website as well as the 2016 Community Calendar.  

Future challenges will be to organise more community events for all ages of the community to have FUN! 

Don’t forget to ‘Like’ the Sport Tasman Kaikoura Facebook page to keep up to date with all the latest community activities. Stay in the loop and don’t miss out!
