On Thursday our 10th grade girls also leave for Auckland to represent Waimak United in the
Norwest United 10th grade girls National Invitational Tournament.
This agegroup is the first tournament away for our girls program and we have proven over the years that our girls development is strong and we compete well. This years team is young, with a combination of 9 & 10 girls and no doubt they too will do us proud.
They begin on Friday with games v Three Kings Broad, Western Springs, and Norwest, and then play Ellerslie, Three Kings United, and then the two Eastern Suburbs teams.
We wish them all the best and look forward to keeping you updated on the Facebook page with their progress.
The girls are able to attend due to the generosity of the following businesses.
We thank them for their continuing support of our club and development programs.
Please support their businesses at every opportunity.

Sunday 6th September dawned a fine but chilly day for the 6th running of the Waimak United 9th grade Festival. The tournament began back in 2010 with 12 teams and has now grown to a 28 team tournament from clubs across Canterbury.
Waimak United entered 5 teams including the Wolverines, an all girls team, and the Wizards, an 8th grade development team who finished a creditable 7th. The Waimak Wasps also performed well finishing 5th overall.
The tournament final was between the Waimak Aces and the Papanui Redwood Aliens. Hopes were riding high on the Aces after the majority of the team were part of the 8th grade development side who won the title in 2014. They did not disappoint, winning the final with a very convincing 10-1 scoreline.
The Waimak Cardinals also took home medals finishing 3rd in the playoff against Selwyn Black. This was a much closer affair with the teams tied 3-3 at the end of normal time. The Cardinals slotted their penalties winning 5-4 in the shootout.
MVP awards for the Waimak teams went to; Maddison Smart (Wolverines), Archie Leggett (Wizards), Harrison Bint (Wasps), Aaron Reavill (Cardinals), and Matthew Foord (Aces).
Special thanks to the youth referees, Luke Fraser, Ollie Willis, Ollie Sharplin, Lucas Clark, Billy Brown, Blair Currie, Henry Sail, and Sam Mason. Your time and effort allows the coaches who normally have to referee all season, a chance to really watch their teams in action. It is a tough job in an intense arena, but we appreciate your efforts all day.

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.
