TEACHER IN CHARGE: To be advised
Welcome to the Tauranga Boy’s Motocross Team. When joining the team and participating at school events around the country, all members are required to show respect to their fellow competitors and teammates and ensure we keep the school’s integrity and values at the forefront when representing the school. It is important to understand that when competing for the school we are competing as a team for overall individual results.
To be a member of the team you must be confident and have participated in motocross events at your local clubs at any level from novice through to competitive level.
We intend to represent the school at a minimum of 6 to 8 motocross rounds this year, this includes the national secondary schools’ events and the Makz Gear King of the secondary school’s series and will be travelling to Whangarei for a round that is part of this series.
This year we will compete in the: King of the Schools competition; Held over 4 rounds, national secondary schools in sports week 6 to 8 events
As per the Schools Sports calendar, first round 6th March
For the 2021 year, we are looking at 8 meetings around the North Island, events are on Fridays and Saturdays
There is a $50 administration fee to be a member of the team, this goes towards trophies and barbecues throughout the year and will be charged to your son's account.
We supply our team riding gear (Fox pants and top with sponsor's logo on it) for events the school and will be representing and this will be handed out at the beginning of the year and is only to be used at TBC team events (no exceptions), as you can appreciate, we only have a minimum quantity in most sizes and sometimes you will need to go up a size for the day. We do apologise if we do not have the right fit in advance.
TBC expects the Tauranga Boys' College Motorcycle Team to race as a team at all events outlined in the calendar.
A legal guardian of your son must attend these events for health and safety reasons on the day, however you can sign over the legal responsibility to another parent that is going to be present on the day and is happy to look after your child under race conditions. This paperwork must be filled out in full and sent to the teacher in charge or team manager before travel.
There is a compulsory meeting at the beginning of each year and all parents need to attend. This is a good opportunity to ask any questions on the night and to meet current and new members.
There are trophies for the end of the year and some of these are calculated on the individual rider points finished placings overall) at the meetings we have attended. Other trophies are awarded by the committee, (this is made up from the team captain, the teacher involved and team manager.) Riders must complete 66.6% of the events laid out to qualify for trophies.
