    Most of our top secondary school athletes may have to wait until New Zealand reaches alert level one to start competing again

    Most of our top secondary school athletes may have to wait until New Zealand reaches alert level one to start competing again


    Executive Director of College Sport Wellington Bryan Dickinson says the vast majority of sport won't start before that time.

    He says even then, some sports won't begin immediately.



    Dickinson says the hope is some sort of shortened winter season will still be possible for secondary schools.
