The event on Friday, co-organised by Sport Waikato and Cambridge East Primary School, saw teams of kids rotate around various stations trying out touch rugby, soccer, volleyball and more.

“This day would not have been able to happen without the support from Cambridge High School, host school Cambridge East Primary, Cambridge Football Club and Sport Waikato Energize,” said Rebecca Foy, Waipa District Coordinator for Sport Waikato.
