** Basketball **
We have been running hour long Basketball Coaching sessions for primary school years for the past few years, but enrolment numbers have been low recently, we have pencilled in Mondays form 4:30pm – 5:30pm for Years 3 – 6 if there is enough interest. If there are some in Years 7 & 8 also keen, Email: rego@yat.org.nz with the age of your child and then we can record if we have enough interest. Just $30 per term.

Our MSD approved after school programme now collects children in our vans from 5 different local schools:
1. South New Brighton Primary
2. Rawhiti Primary
3. New Brighton Catholic
4. Nova Montisorri
5. Chisnallwood Intermediate


A new decade begins and our Senior Oscar is expanding, due to requests, to also pick up students from Chisnallwood Intermediate.  If you’re looking for after school care, with a variety of activities, in a nurturing environment and without the little ones, then check out our Senior’s Only OSCAR – just for Years 5 – 8!

At $18 a day (or $17 for two or more sibling), including a van pick up from one of the 5 local schools:

  • South New Brighton
  • Rawhiti Primary
  • New Brighton Catholic
  • Nova Montessori
  • Chisneallwood Intermediate

We are MSD approved so there’s a good chance you may qualify for funding to subsidise the cost of OSCAR too. Fill in a few forms at the beginning of the year, and after that it’s easy! Check out what you could receive at:

  1. 6. NEW UpstreamNZ Partnership

Youth Alive Trust has a new fundraising scheme, where YAT receives donations when people use approved businesses for their everyday purchases!  This VIDEO explains how it works.

  • E.g.: If you switch your electricity to YES Power (Canterbury based, and can beat most other rates) then YAT receives an average of $100 per year, at no extra cost to you! (ask them for a quote HERE!),
  • E.g.: If you need you heat pump cleaned, and you use an Upstream approved business, then YAT receives a percentage of that cost, e.g.: 15%

Other services and products include travel, Real Estate, Home Loans, Coffee, Solar Energy, Bouncy Castles, Electrician, Painter & Plasterer, Photographers, Builders, Bins, Carpet, Insurance and more!!!

Next time you need a service or product, book your business through: www.upstreamnz.co.nz and ask them to donate their gift to Youth Alive Trust.

Wishing you and your whanau a wonderful long weekend!

The YAT Team
