Register for Coaching Clinics Today!

Waikato-Maniapoto will once again run coaching clinics for our rangatahi and also those school children around the greater Waikato-Maniapoto rohe.  This is a great way to include members of our whanau into our tournament who may be too young to participate.  We also expose the National Maori Hockey tournament to a wider audience and generate awareness for future generations about the annual tournament.
