A sporting history and future
Waitara is a place of rich sporting history. In the last 120 years Waitara has had 80 sports people represent New Zealand in their codes. It also has had New Zealand representative coaches in swimming, rugby league, wrestling, special Olympics and surfing.
The pride in Waitara’s sporting history and culture has created a determination amongst the community to continue to grow this heritage into the future.
Waitara today continues to turn out accomplished New Zealand sports people but the community has been questioning how we will continue to do this without improving the current level of facilities we offer our sports people.
