The young White team made the final having only lost to the Black team in pool play and were deserved runners-up. Parklands rounded out the medals finishing third. The Waimak Blue and Red teams battled hard throughout the weekend and were a credit to the club with their awesome attitudes. Both teams included 8 & 9 year olds who have gained a lot of experience and revelled in the chance to play in the tournament.
The 13th grade Waimak team also went through the tournament undefeated and didn't concede a goal. The defeated Parklands in the final 3-0.

Big Brothers Big Sisters North Canterbury
are looking for more mentors!
Big Brothers Big Sisters North Canterbury matches children ages of 6 through to 18 with mentors in a professionally supported one-to-one relationship.
Our programme matches a volunteer Big Brother or Big Sister with a child who could benefit from a one-to-one relationship with a caring adult. Mentors and the young person they are matched with meet a few times per month, for a couple of hours each time, at places and times convenient to both. The two share similar interests, and they spend their time together engaged in activities such as kicking a ball around, watching movies, visiting the museum, cheering on a local sports team or simply hanging out.
Children who spend time with a mentor gain confidence, acquire new skills and competencies, and develop an enhanced capacity to care for others. Mentors experience a sense of discovery and enjoyment as they see a world of possibilities open up through the child’s eye.
