This awesome team of young men only have 3 weeks to fundraise $10,000 to be able to attend the Secondary Schools Basketball Nationals.
Nelson / Tasman
The Nayland College Senior A Boys Basketball team have qualified for Nationals over the weekend at the South Island Secondary Schools Basketball Championship with their top 6 finish. They now need to raise over $10,000 in less than 3 weeks, to attend this tournament - which is a pretty tall order. This is a team of 12 incredibly hard working, motivated young men (aged 15 - 18 yrs old), who should all feel incredibly proud of the mahi they've put in, the superb sportsmanship they have demonstrated throughout the season and the awesome team culture they have.
If any businesses or major sponsors would like recognition we would be happy to add your name and logo to our poster and in school publications - just contact the schools business center.
Nayland College has been serving the Nelson community for 50 years. It is a leader in developing inspirational learning programmes, nurturing students to reach their full potential and has placed a high value on developing independent, confident learners.
Funds will be used to get the team up to Palmerston North on the ferry; cover their accommodation costs, feed them (no small task!), and pay the entry fees for the tournament.
