TRANS TASMAN INFORMATION FOR U11 AND U12 ATHLETES:
Trans Tasman is a wonderful competition between NSW and Auckland that has been going for many years.

The Trans Tasman Challenge will be held at Mt Smart Stadium, Auckland on Sunday, 14 January 2018. Click on the relevant links below to access the nomination forms for both Athletes and Officials.
The trip includes athletics carnivals as well as fun parks, sightseeing and quite a rare opportunity for an overnight stay on a Maori Marae – the traditional Maori meeting house.
Important: There will be an Information Session next Saturday 21 October, commencing at 6pm at the Willoughby Hotel, Penshurst Street, Willoughby.
This is a good opportunity to meet the rest of the Trans Tasman Tour Committee, get more details and ask any questions you may have. The Bistro at the Willoughby Hotel serves very nice reasonably priced food, so it’s also a good opportunity for dinner with the family after the session
