The Zespri AIMS Games strives to provide a sporting competition in Tauranga Moana for emerging adolescents/rangitahi in Years Seven and Eight, irrespective of the context in which they are being educated. This includes the participation of New Zealand students who are home schooled.

Home schooled students must still meet all other Eligibility Criteria for the 2024 Zespri AIMS Games. 17 of our sporting codes on offer in 2024 will provide the opportunity for athletes to enter as an individual. Home schooled students cannot represent another school in any of the team sporting codes.
