Age Limit: A player must be 16 years or older. All of the SDA Sports Tournaments have an age limit of 16+ for players. This is due to concerns of safety, fairness and legal requirements for duty of care for children playing at this level of competition. Thank you for taking note of this age limit and protecting the standard of our Tournaments. If a team is found to have used an under-16 player, they will forfeit that game and the breech will be reported back to your Church Pastor and/or Youth Leader, which may result in suspensions of future tournaments.
Fee & Application: $290.00 per team (This cost covers the venue, trophies, refs, tournament running expenses and equipment, and security). The cutoff date for ALL applications and payments is Monday, 1 October 2018. Any player changes in successfully registered teams must then be phoned/emailed through by Monday, before. Team acceptance will be by acknowledgement of your successful Application Form by the North New Zealand Conference Youth Ministries.
Championship Grade – for the teams who wish to play 4 His Glory through excellence and competition.

Be part of the Sporting Legacy of the SDA Church
The 4 annual Sports Tournaments run by the North NZ Conference have a long and rich legacy of discipleship. They provide a forum for young people to show excellence, have fun, make connections, and shine for God’s Glory. We love seeing the churches use this time by mentoring and encouraging their young people to be better connected to God and grow as disciples of Jesus. This happens during training, transport, games, fellowship, meals, team worships, and the extreme pressure that comes with playing sport. We also aim to provide opportunities for Adventist young people to grow healthy Christian relationships with each other and to celebrate being a valuable part of our church. The Conference will continue to organise the safest, fairest and best planned Tournaments to ensure these objectives are met.
Our dream is that every young person becomes a disciple of Jesus who:
- Knows Jesus
- Accepts Jesus
- Follows Jesus
- Serves Jesus
- Shares Jesus
Our prayer for each team is that they use their time together wisely to connect, grow, reach out, have fun, and learn how to glorify Christ in every area of their lives.
