Tasman Secondary School Sport
The Regional Sports Director (RSD) works directly with schools and sports organisations to facilitate a variety of secondary school sports events across the region. Students from Nelson, Marlborough and Golden Bay have the opportunity to participate and excel in their chosen sports at local, regional and national levels.
There is a nationwide network of RSDs around the country; each RSD facilitates training for and provides advice to their local school sports coordinators. It is the role of Sport Tasman to work closely with Sport NZ, NZSSSC (New Zealand Secondary School Sports Council) and secondary school principals to ensure the RSD role enhances sport opportunities for students. For more information on the RSD role see the RSD sport coordinator induction booklet
In 2014 our region will host the New Zealand Secondary Schools Squash (August 8-9, Nelson) and the NZ National Area Schools Tournament (July 7-10, Nelson)
