U15 KKNC Representative Team
If our haerenga was solely ‘result’ based we are very proud of our 4th placing it’s been some years since we attended the Taranaki Tournament so was awesome to be back; congratulations Mangonui U15’s placing 3rd (by 1 point) and to Howick Pakuranga & Taupo who gain entry into C Grade in 2020.
In 2019 our purpose or outcome to attend Taranaki was never going to be ‘result driven’ whanau; we should be mindful, that in this space its all about development – to have an opportunity to measure ourselves in a national environment should always be taken – individually(as players; coaches; managers and umpires); as a team; our values/visions as a Centre and especially within our own region welcomes growth. How we build on our capabilities to ensure development is our collective challenge and so very exciting we have learnt so much and in turn there is so much more for us to learn .
We do this because we simply have a love for our code; a connection to work hard to encourage and support opportunities (at all levels and for everyone ) ….. it’s who we are – good people – good athletes.
