Claybird Shooting

Recently TCAS had two teams travel to Tapanui to compete in the annual Inter-School Clay Bird shoot. TCAS had a competitive team - Robbie Jackson, Kate Jackson, Izzy Jenks and Archie Valli and a training team - Lauren Grant, Nicole Sinclair, Joey Jenks and Cooper Cleland. All students had their own individual goals and came away very pleased with their efforts.  Robbie Jackson was TCAS best shooter on the day with a score of 14/39.

Parents should have received an email with details and how to pre-order an optional afternoon snack from The Bakehouse. 

Please complete the form even if players are unable to attend so we know numbers.

Our TCAS Senior A team will have one last hit out on the court this year, playing in a tournament in Dunedin on Sunday 13th and Monday 14th.


Touch is again proving very popular with six TCAS teams entered into the South Otago Junior Touch competition, involving over 40 TCAS Primary School students. Touch starts with grading games on 17th and 24th September for Year 3-4 players, while Teeny Touch will start next term on 15th October, the final game for all grades being 10th December. Teams will be announced next week with junior coaches having practice during lunchtimes at school.

Next Wednesday, 9th September there is Coaching and Referee clinics run by Otago Touch in at the Cross Rec Centre. We are hoping as many of our Junior coaches/referee volunteers Danneille Mason, Jade Gutsell, Cooper Cleland, Blake Affleck, Ella Senior and Amelia Morriosn will be able to attend the clinics.
