The 11th grade Waimak Black side went through the tournament undefeated. They met the Waimak White team in the final and won 4-0. 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. CashmereTech took third place in a gripping extra time and penalties playoff over Halswell. In another tense encounter FCTwenty11 defeated Nomads in extra time in the 5th/6th playoff.
Waimak United took out both the Golden Glove and Golden Boot awards in each grade.

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.
