Winter sports are a cinch with CINCH!

Cover of Children's Book of SportIt's that time of year again. Junior sports clubs are gearing up for the winter sports season. It is time to get your children registered for their sport of choice.

A great resource you can use to find a club near you is the Libraries' CINCH (Community INformation CHristchurch) directory which lists the sports clubs in the Christchurch, Selwyn and Waimakariri areas.

To save you time (we like to be helpful like that!), we have prepared some search links for you. Once you have clicked on one of the links below, you can then click on the locations shown in the left hand column to find the clubs nearest to you.

  • Soccer
    Would your child enjoy the beautiful game?
  • Rugby
    New Zealand's game of choice
  • Rugby League
    Is your child a future Kiwi or Kiwi Fern?
  • Hockey
    Is there a future Olympian at your house?
  • Netball
    Customarily the first choice for the girls

New Zealand has a wonderful tradition of sport fields filled with children on a Saturday morning. Most clubs have midget grades for the 4- to 6-year-olds, so it's never too soon to start them. Plus watching the little ones is seriously cute! Have a chat with your wee one today.
