Greg Oke is our current High Performance Manager, Peter Housiaux is a former Paddle Ferns coach (including winning the 2016 World Championships), Jacqui Frost is our current Coaching Manager and Claire Osborne, who’s resume includes former long-time Paddle Ferns player and NZ selector.

NZCPA has worked with Sport New Zealand to come up with specific guidelines for operating our competitions under level 2 (COVID-19) restrictions. In short; in the event we go back to level 2 restrictions we should be able to host competitions like School Nationals and the Club Championships. However these events would then be required to operate under more restrictive operating conditions to ensure everyone’s heath and safety. In the event of a level 2 lockdown players, teams, officials and spectators will be expected to abide by these instructions.
Use these forms to apply for the 2020 Development Camp ‘Road to 2025’. Those players wishing to trial for Oceania 2021 should attend this camp (unless you are currently or have been previously selected in a World Championships team). If you intend to put your name forward as a Coach, Referee or Manager for 2021 Oceania Championships then it is advisable that you attend this development camp.
The closing date for applications is Friday 6th November 2020 at 6pm
