Rangatahi Shine at Pillars First Outdoor Event of the Year
Updated: Mar 13
Future All Blacks and Tennis Champs are among our cohort of Pillars young people!
Pillars began the day at Counties Manukau Rugby- where Tee, Teish and Shy (with the support of local Police Officers Wayne and Nadine) took our mentors and mentees through well organised and highly engaging games and activities. They enjoyed team ice breakers, a stadium tour, ran through the tunnel like real players, and learned rugby skills, tricks, and challenges from the pros.
The activities had the children and mentors working as a team, challenging themselves and each other, enjoying the fresh air, sunshine, and practicing footwork and fitness skills.
A healthy lunch was shared, water fight was had, then a mass move to tennis! Lynette and her team of coaches ran engaging tennis games, skills and challenges that had everyone practicing their hand eye coordination, fitness, communication skills and working together.
The children and mentors all had a fantastic day with many tamariki saying they wanted to join their schools tennis and rugby teams.
Events like this allow our Pillars young people to connect with their wider community and encourage them to grow their confidence by trying new skills and meeting new people.
Special shoutout to Counties Manukau Rugby and Pukekohe Tennis Club for making this event possible.
