Kia ora koutou, as of midnight tonight Auckland will remain in Alert Level 2 but the gathering size will increase to 100. The rest of Aotearoa is in Alert Level 1 since Monday 21 September at 11.59pm

Waka Ama New Zealand will be maintaining our current policy with regard to the Auckland in Level 2 (gathering size of 100) and the Rest of Aotearoa in Level 1

You can read that policy here. 

All of  Aotearoa Level 1:

We will review the current policy on the 7th of October once the Government makes their next announcement regarding COVID levels.

This will mean that any Auckland events scheduled prior to the 7th of October will need to be rescheduled. 

We recommend that your club take time to carefully read and understand the requirements and consider how your club will implement them. It is very important that all of the requirements are actioned by clubs and adhered to by paddlers and teams.  Please don’t rush back to practice and get it wrong. 

Waka Ama New Zealand is happy to answer any questions that you may have or for you to contact us to bounce some ideas off us, around how your club may implement the Level 2 requirements as outlined. Contact

Kia kaha whānau! We've got this. Look out for one another, be kind and stay safe
