Building strong minds and bodies

While our TAG team in North America is being buffeted by winter rains and cold temps, our New Zealand community is enjoying oncoming summer. And with the good weather come some of our favorite community sponsorship events. 

Surf Life Saving: a sport and a community service

Surrounded by water as we are, surf safety and respect for the ocean are ingrained in every New Zealand child from a young age. TAG contributes to hundreds of junior surf lifeguards in training, helping them with the opportunity to become full-fledged Surf Life Guards through fun training and competition.

Never too young for surf life saving and fun on the beaches of Taranaki.

Meanwhile, on terra firma…

The Stratford Golf Club, sponsored by TAG Oil, held a golf tournament for primary schools in the central Taranaki region. More than 50 students took to the fairways to play in the TAG Oil Juniors tournament. And during the four weeks leading up to the tournament and a professional coach came in one day a week to provide lessons.
