What is it?

We want to bring more feel good moments to our communities. Which is why we're proud to partner with The New Zealand Sport Collective (NZSC) for our Caltex Sports Sponsorship.

The NZSC is an organisation focused on making sport more accessible for young people, by removing the barriers and helping them take part in a wide range of sports across New Zealand.

Together, Caltex and the NZSC aim to increase participation in the wide range of sports available to secondary school students – from curling to rugby 7’s, diving to basketball – and everything in between!

 

Why sport matters

Sport has heaps of benefits for kids all ages. It’s a great way to stay fit and healthy, and also helps kids develop confidence, social skills and improve their energy levels.

Sadly, not all young people get the chance to take part in sport as much as they'd like – mainly for financial reasons.

 

How we're supporting local schools

We know the added cost of things like training and travel to tournaments can often be a challenge. So heaps of our independent owners/retailers are teaming up with a local secondary school of their choice, donating $1,000 worth of Caltex StarCash cards to help fuel their sporting pursuits.

We'd just like to say a huge thank you to all of the Caltex stations that have put their hands up so far. It’s been great to see such positive feedback from our community already.

 

Want to get in on the action?

Of course you do. You can support secondary school sport and students by watching, cheering them on, or even asking at your local school whether they need volunteers for games and tournaments. Maybe get your mates involved too!

Check out live streams and other content for secondary school events on the Whakaata Māori YouTube channel — a great way to keep up with the play wherever you are in Aotearoa New Zealand.
