For those haven't, please PM Debs if you're able to pay tomorrow and you will get yours. One final thing - no hats are welcome so bring your gel, hair spray & comb if you have an afro. Smart is the look we are aiming for and expecting.
All the very best of luck, lets have a great trip and awesome game.

Hello Parents,


It has been decided the Travel Kit will consist of only a Jacket and Training Top with the HK Badge embodied.  The cost has therefore been reduced to $83, due Thursday 10th September.  To all of those parents who have already paid, thank you, your refunds of the excess money will be distributed back to your son on Thursday 10th September after training.


As always if you have any queries please txt me on 0211689505 or email me at: debspokoati11@ymail.com

Dear Parent/Caregiver,
Congratulations on your son being selected for the Horowhenua/Kapiti 2015 Under 18s Representative Team and Wider Training Squad.
We will have 4 games in total during our season, training details will be posted on the HK website along with any additional team information as it becomes available.  All game dates, times and venues will also be put up once confirmed.
The coaches have selected a training Squad of 28 players however come Game Day there will only be 22 players eligible to take the field as per HYC rules.  It has been decided a large training squad is required for two reasons, the first being to ensure we have 6 additional first class subs fit and ready to travel and cover injuries and secondly to give us the opportunity to include as many of our young HK men in the Rep Season experience as we can.
To cover the season and travel kit the Rep fees will be $120 per player.  To ensure we are able to have the kit purchased and ready for the boy’s travel, full payment will be required by 26th August.  We apologise for the short time frame however unfortunately this could not be avoided. 
Carwyn, Nathan and Jackson are dedicated to providing our boys with their knowledge and experience, however the onus will be on the boys to make the most of this during the limited time we have together.
With your son’s selection comes much responsibility for him to be organised as well as giving him the chance to demonstrate, accountability for his actions both on and off the field, dedication to his new team of brothers and humility in his drive to deliver on what will be expected of him.  The lads will soon be entering senior rugby, so the Under 18s is the perfect squad to see them through their last years of college rugby and prepare them for their future in the senior teams.
If you have any queries regarding the fees or any other team related information please contact me on 021 168 9505 or email me at debspokoati11@ymail.com and I will be happy to have a chat.
Kind Regards
