Franklin Zone Primary Schools Tournaments

Many of you have been waiting to hear from us in regards to the upcoming Yr 5/6 and Yr 7/8 schools tournaments so I apologise for the delay in getting this information to you all. As you can imagine trying to determine whether we will be able to go ahead on the planned dates is near impossible right now, however there is no reason why we can't plan and take registrations now. 

Under the current restrictions we would not be able to host the tournament due to Covid-19 alert level 2.5 restrictions.

We are expecting an announcement later this week around alert levels for next week, but whether we will find out about the dates of the tournaments is unknown. Therefore, we would like to take registrations now for the current tournament dates, knowing that if there is no announcement of Auckland moving to Alert Level 1 before the confirmation dates listed below then we will postpone the tournament and find a new suitable date for the tournament to go ahead.

Wednesday 16th September Year 5/6 Boys 7th September 14
Monday 21st September Year 7/8 Girls 14th September 12

Food: Students will need to bring their own packed lunch. There will be NO food or drinks available to buy at the venue.

Supervision of students: This is the responsibility of each school. Each school will be allocated an area in the viewing gallery. All of the students belonging will be stored here and eating and drinking will only take place in this allocated area.

Officials: This will be organised by Franklin Basketball but we will need schools to supply people to keep the score. This is a basic tally system and easy to learn.
