AIMS Games 2018

ACC SportSmart is sponsoring the AIMS Games again this year. 

Taking place in Tauranga from 9 - 14 September 2018, the AIMS Games is New Zealand's biggest sports event for young athletes aged 11 - 13 years. 

It's an important age to start teaching young athletes skills to form good lifelong habits and stay in the game and off the sideline with injuries.

Prepare like a pro with the ACC SportSmart warm up 

To help young athletes prepare #LikeAPro for their sport, we recommend coaches use the ACC SportSmart warm up or one of the sport-specific warm ups. There are warm ups for practice days and for tournament days like the AIMS Games.
