Raising funds to help a talented volleyball player travel to Florida to take part in USA High Performance Champs 2019.

Main image

Maama Vaipulu is an extremely talented sportswoman of Maori and Tongan descent. She is gifted in many sports but at the moment she is concentrating on volleyball. She is an integral member of the Aorere College Premier Girls Volleyball team, where she helped us to a 4th place finish at the NZ Secondary Schools Champs in 2018. She has been invited this year to take part in a Volleyball NZ Performance Training Camp to pick a team for the NZL Junior Women's team which will travel to take part in the USA High Performance Champs in Florida in July 2019. Travel to take part in this opportunity is an expensive affair and she needs to raise $6000 if she wants to take part.

I manage the girls volleyball team, all of whom are awesome, amazing, beautiful human beings. The benefits that Maama would bring back after taking part in this opportunity would make our team of young players that much stronger. She deserves to go, deserves the chance to take part. Her family does an amazing job of making sure that the whole family of talented siblings are given every opportunity to excel in their chosen field, but I want to help them by easing the burden of worrying about how to provide this opportunity for their daughter.

We have had Aorere College represented in the past at this very same tournament, and I would like this representation to continue at the highest level for the next crop of talented volleyballers. If you like to see talent overcome barriers, if you want to support a young star of the future, if you went to Aorere College, if you want to help a family get their daughter to Florida, if you want to do something nice for someone, here is your chance.

Many hands make light work, if we all give a little it will add up to a lot and be enough to help Maama out.

Marie Sua's involvement (page creator)

I am the manager of Maama's school volleyball team and I know how talented she is and how much she and the team would benefit from her taking part in this opportunity.

Use of funds

According to Volleyball NZ, cost for the US HP Champs is approximately $6000 per person. Funds raised will go towards that cost. I want to help as much as possible towards the $6000 cost.
