KAMAR & MUSAC or PC Schools.

School Sport NZ has worked with the developers of the most common Student Management Systems, KAMAR, MUSAC & PC Schools to include a sports management facility as a part of their whole school system. If your school uses either KAMAR, MUSAC or PC Schools we strongly advise you to use the facility to manage your sporting data and information. See your schools system administrator for advice. KAMAR, MUSAC & PC Schools run excellent Helpdesks for any assistance you may require.

We strongly advise that you use Kamar, MUSAC or PC Schools. They efficiently manage the sporting functions in your school. All of these will allow you to record player, coach and team information including names, contact details, fees, uniforms and much more as well as print lists that you require from time to time and, as an added bonus, will accurately produce the Census required by School Sport NZ and your RSD each November at the push of a button.​​​​​​​
