Five days of competition across 11 divisions saw some outstanding technical play and athleticism from teams participating from up and down the country.

In the girls Division 1 final, Rangitoto College saw off fellow Auckland school Orewa College 3-0 meanwhile in the boys final, the North Aucklanders also took the title after a 3-1 win over Nelson's Waimea College.
