February 24th 2020:

A big week in school sport last week, swimming sports, the launch of Sport Performance Coromandel and cricket. Wonderful seeing Colville, Te Rerenga and Coromandel take on the challenge events in great spirit and the racing results spread across the three schools.

Sport Performance Coromandel was presented to school and community last Thursday, I have been mobbed by a hundred kids wanting to know if tonight is the start night, we'll get under way in a couple of weeks when Kelly and I get past swimming and athletics.

Awesome being mobbed on the concept, love the enthusiasm, we'll have information out to the young people who have registered and everything will be up and running in line with the start of winter season sport training. Cool everyone is excited about SPC though, looking forward to see how everything unfolds over this year.

Cricket is looking better each week, starting to find our little stars out there and it can be assured the day will be a lot of fun March 12.

Bowls is coming on great. Tomorrow night is the last of the school sessions and a big thanks to the Coromandel Bowling Club for running this over the last three weeks. It has been a lot of fun and the young ones have loved coming along. The senior students will have a training programme in the run to the TV Secondary School Sport Association tournament held her April 1.

This week is school athletics with senior students looking towards entry in the Thames Valley secondary school events Thursday 5 March. Anyone keen to lend a hand on the day roll up this Thursday. Student athletes need to get names to Miss O as soon as, otherwise they'll miss out.

Information has gone out regarding the Central North Island Area Schools coaching clinic held in Te Awamutu, April, for selection to attend the NZ Area school tournament down in Dunedin July. Names have to be in fairly quick to secure accommodation in the Waikato.

Girls football training starts next week for Mercury Bay with a few locals looking keen to be part of what has become a very successful culture in district sport. School rugby is also gauging interest from across the district for Under 15's and first XV teams, let's hope it all comes together to build on last years, first season results
