|We are delighted to confirm that both the North and South Island Colgate Games will go ahead as planned in January.
Entry numbers have held up well despite the challenging past few months and we are excited that the iconic annual event for children aged 7-14 will go ahead as planned.
Both the Wellington and Southland regions are currently at orange in the new traffic light system which forms the new COVID-19 Protection Framework. Note, for the event to go ahead the respective regions will need to remain at orange or be at green light.
The Colgate Games is a vaccination pass event with all attendees aged 12 years and three months and older needing to hold a vaccination pass to attend the event. Additional information on venue access protocols will be made available next week.
For clarification those who need to hold a vaccine pass (all those aged 12 and three months and above) includes athletes, officials, volunteers, vendors, team managers, coaches, parents and spectators.

Further event information will be sent to clubs who have entered teams later this week.
We also invite you to follow the North and/or South Island Colgate Games event pages for event updates, and encourage your members to do the same. If you have any questions about the Colgate Games please contact us at email@example.com.
