We want as many people as possible to show their appreciation for the Sport Makers, who literally make sport happen, by sending them a thank you e-card available at Sport Makers who receive a thank you e-card can enter a monthly draw to win $500 worth of sports merchandise for them or their club. Nationally there will be 34 winners a month, with at least one winner from each RST region.
The ‘Thank a Sport Maker’ campaign is part of a partnership involving the Lotto Volunteer Foundation, RSTs and Sport NZ. It will see sport volunteers sharing in over $1 million of quality clothing and sports gear over the next three years.  More...

Coaching Vacancy - Gore   9 Jun 2013
Coach required with immediate start.
We have skaters struggling to get the lessons they would like due to overload on our current coach after the coach we had lined up to come to New Zealand chose not to come.
We would like someone who:
• Can coach Kiwiskate, singles, school/social group bookings, development and possibly off-ice training
• Is ideally available to work in all/most of our figure skating time however we would consider even someone who could only work certain days.
• Figure Skating times Monday to Friday before school, after school Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and Saturday mornings until lunch time.
• Must be eligible to work in New Zealand.
• Preferably have or are working towards NZIFSA Level One coaching accreditation or could cross-credit from another country.
Ice Sports Southland is primarily a figure skating orientated rink where there is plenty of ice time and it’s easy to be the only ones on the ice. Come and be part of a fantastic member run indoor rink in the sports heart of Gore. As we have the first of our competitions within a couple of weeks don’t put off applying for this position. For more information please email our Figure Skating Executive Alison Duff at or phone our President Marita Soper on 021 332 310.
