Anchor AIMS Games is the premier sporting competition for young sportspeople across New Zealand and the wider South Pacific.
Every September, many thousands of 11 to 13-year-olds gather in Tauranga to compete against the best of their age in a variety of individual and team sports. For many, this is their first experience of a super-scale international sports event, complete with an opening ceremony, professional livestream coverage and world-class facilities. Anchor AIMS Games encourages an active life, fair play, and participation across a variety of sports. Many professional Kiwi athletes have come through the Games on their way to specialisation and achievement on the world stage.
