Re-engaging teachers in the joy & value of sport

Can we make up a team with another school or institution in the area? 

Yes, teams can be made up of colleagues from any school or tertiary institution across New Zealand. They just need to be employees of a Ministry of Education registered Early Childhood, Primary, Intemediate or Secondary school, or employees of a Tertiary Education Organisation (TEO).


I'm interested in playing a sport, but can't get enough people to make up a team. Can you put me in a team?

We will try our best to help! We have created the NZTG Team Builder group from our facebook page. This forum is created specifically for individuals to connect with others to create or join teams looking for team-mates. It is over to you to make this happen, we just created the space!


I'm currently on maternity leave, can I still register for the Games?  

Yes, absolutley. The NZ Teachers Games are open to anyone on the payroll of Early Childhood centre, Primary school, Secondary school, or Tertiary Education Organisation. 


Are Teacher Aides and Support Staff able to register for the Games? 

Yes. All employees of a Ministry of Education registered Early Childhood, Primary, Intemediate or Secondary school, or of a Tertiary Education Organisation may apply to compete in the New Zealand Teachers Games. 


Are School Board of Trustees members able to register for the Games? 

Yes, if they are on the payroll of the school. 


I'm currently studying to be a teacher, am I able to register for the NZ Teachers Games? 

Unfortunatley not. Student teachers are not eligible to compete.


Do I need to pay the admin fee AND for the sport/event I'm wanting to participate in? 

Yes, everyone wanting to participate in any of the events, including the free events, must pay the registration fee.  


Does my whole team have to register online? 

Yes. Every participant must fill a registration form and pay the admin fee and sports fee/s at the time of checkout that they would like to participate in. If it is a team sport, you must include the team name so we know which team you belong to. 


Can my partner attend the social events?

Do I need to pay the admin fee if I'm wanting to participate in a free event?
