Many thanks to everyone in our community who continues to support our Rainbow Warrior Football program through Nā Koa Football Club and a warm welcome to our newest members. We appreciate the trust that you show in Nā Koa by the sharing of your time and your treasures.

In the fiscal year that ended on 30 June, Nā Koa continued to support your Warriors in the areas of:

  • Education
  • Player safety
  • Health and nutrition

Nearly $1.25 million was raised in fiscal year 2017 with nearly half coming from the Waterhouse Charitable Trust (the funds from the Trust went primarily to help with Summer School and Cost of Attendance.) The remainder of the funds were raised through membership, various fundraisers, and donations from the community.

Please continue your support of our Warriors. Come to a Coach’s lunch during the football season to hear firsthand from the coaches how the team is doing; share the benefits of membership with your family and friends; go to a game; or make a donation to Nā Koa. Every dollar helps to educate our players and make them stronger and more competitive. We continue on the journey to recapture Pride Rock and want you to be on our team!
