SPORTS MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
There are several electronic Sports Management Systems available for you to use to efficiently manage the
sporting functions in your school. All of these will allow you to record player, coach and team information including
names, contact details, fees, uniforms and much more as well as print lists that you require from time to time.

As an added bonus, all the systems will also accurately produce the School Representation Census required by
NZSSSC and your RSD each November at the push of a button.

STUDENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS: NZSSSC has worked with the developers of the most common Student
Management Systems, KAMAR, MUSAC & PC Schools to include a sports management facility as a part of
their system. If your school uses these School Management Systems we strongly advise you to use the facility to
manage your sporting data and information.

See your schools system administrator for advice. KAMAR, MUSAC and PC Schools run Helpdesks for any
assistance you may require.

2017 New Zealand Secondary Schools Sports Council Event Calendar
This event calendar has been prepared by the New Zealand Secondary Schools Sports Council Inc in partnership with the event organisers and National Sporting Organisations Every effort has been
made in preparing this schedule to confirm dates and venues. Any changes due to extraordinary circumstances will be posted on our website www.nzsssc.org.nz so you should check regularly for updates.
Endorsed: Two events, NISS Skiing & NISS Snowboarding, have made a case that they cannot run their events to the standard that is expected by schools and their athletes within the timeframes set
by NZSSSC policies. The Board has accepted these positions and, without precedent, has approved the endorsement of these events. Only the events in the Calendar on the following pages have been
sanctioned or endorsed. NZSSSC is not able to support any events that may be planned but are not sanctioned or endorsed and expects schools not to send teams to national or island events that do not
appear on the calendar. It is not helpful to a planned programme that NZSSSC works towards if schools attend un-notified events. NZSSSC has made every effort to schedule national and island secondary
school sports events in weekends, holidays and Tournament Weeks times that meet the needs of the sports while ensuring minimum interruption to the learning needs of students and schools.
For any information regarding the calendar of events, contact Garry Carnachan, NZSSSC Executive Director at ceo@nzsssc.org.nz or 027 563 8000
