Pūrongo 384 | Aotea Netball Nationals
Tērā ia te tonamana neti pōro Māori.
I korowaitia ngā hau maha ki raro i a Taranaki maunga arā ki Ngā Motu.
He kaupapa whakahirahira tonu tēnei e whakapiki ana e whakakake ana i te waiora me te wairua Māori anō hoki.
I tae ake a Eruera Rerekura ki te whakataetae nei.
After months of training, bonding, growing and preparing the Aotea Māori Netball team hosted the national tournament in New Plymouth over Easter weekend.
50 Māori girls most of who were not brought up in their taha Māori were nurtured and eventually learned more about themselves by going to noho marae (marae stay overs) being taught about their whakapapa and appreciating the whanaungatanga, connecting with one another.
Māori Netball grew out of kaupapa hauora supporting the target of a smokefree Aotearoa by 2025.
It’s hoped that the hauora aspect of the sport encourages a healthy lifestyle on and off the netball court and for the rest of their lives.
Thanks to Silks Audit who sponsorsed the Aotea Māori Netball team who believe in developing young Māori women to achieve.
