We're absolutely delighted to kick-start a massive year for our 17th tournament, set to take place from Saturday 4th September to Friday 10th September 2021.

Registration opens Friday 12th February. For registration costs and information visit

The Anchor AIMS Games is an inter-school sporting competition for young sportspeople. Every September, many thousands of 11 to 13-year-olds gather in Tauranga to compete against their age in a variety of individual and team sports. For many, this is their first experience of a super-scale 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 23 sports. Many professional Kiwi athletes have come through the Games on their way to specialisation and achievement on the world stage.

We look forward to creating amazing memories and joy, we will be back, bigger and better than ever, from September 4-10, 2021... lock it in!

If you have any registration questions that can't be answered through the website or app, please email the Tournament
