The 2016 New Zealand Secondary School Floorball Championships were held at the Walter Nash Centre in Lower Hutt on 6-7 April. This was the first time the tournament has been held during summer tournament week and there were 14 teams across three grades (Senior Boys, U15 Boys, Girls/Mixed) from the following schools - Burnside High School, Heretaunga College, Pukekohe College, Queen Margaret's College, Rongotai College, Scots College, St Patrick's College, Wellington College, Wellington East Girls' College & Wellington High School.
The finals were all very close this year - congratulations to all the winning teams!

Girls Final - Wellington East Girls' College 6 : Queen Margaret's College 5

A session was held by the head coaches of the NZ Men's Under 19 team and the NZ Women's team during the tournament. This was a great chance to spot up and coming talent and for the coaches to speak with students interested in the opportunity to play internationally in the future.
It's great to see this event growing every year - a big thank you to the NZ Secondary School Sports Council for their help to run this event and for promoting it to the school community!
