Important Information for Term 1 2022 from School Sport NZ

School Sport NZ has confirmed that all School Sport NZ sanctioned events in Term 1 2022 (including the Term 1 holidays) will be restricted to fully vaccinated participants, aged 12 and over, only.

Where practicable, this mandate extends to spectators in attendance. This decision will be reviewed post Summer Tournament Week 2022, taking into account the latest Government advice.

School Sport NZ is actively working with their sport partners for Term 1 events to ensure that compliance is manageable and that Health and Safety plans and guidance is updated to reflect the Covid Protection Framework.

The events on the School Sport NZ Calendar will not be able to proceed if Covid Vaccination Certificates are not checked, as the gathering limits at Orange and Red, in particular, become too restrictive for viable sports events to take place. This mandate will provide clarity for all stakeholders to plan with confidence that events on the School Sport NZ Calendar will be able to continue.
