Sport Waikato will be continuing to operate at Level 2 while practicing strict hygiene and physical distancing, as well as moving our meetings to online where at all possible.

At alert Level 2, sport and recreation can continue as long as gathering numbers, contact tracing and physical distancing (where possible) are observed. Please contact your regional sporting organisation for updates and information specific to your sport.

Here's a reminder for what play, active recreation and sport looks like at Level 2: https://bit.ly/2DMh1M7
