The Trans Tasman is for athletes in the U11 and U12 age groups, from both NSW and Auckland. Every second year, a team from NSW (boys and girls in both the U11 and U12 age groups), travel to Auckland for the Trans Tasman Tour. On alternate years, a team from Auckland travels to Sydney. Next season the Trans Tasman Challenge will take place in Auckland in January 2016. The team to tour Auckland in January 2016 has now been announced.

The Trans Tasman Tour usually takes place over 10 days, during which children get the opportunity to meet with people of another country and learn about their customs, as well as take part in several athletic competitions, culminating in the Trans Tasman Challenge.
For the away tours, there will be a number of bulletins produced. The first one for 2016 which contains the nomination forms for both athletes and officials, plus all details regarding the Tour to Auckland is now available. Click on Bulletin No.1.
