"I Like Kiwisport Because ... "
Soccer, rugby, hockey too
KiwiSports are good for you.
Baseball, cricket, swimming as well,
KiwiSports are just so swell

Skiing and skating on snow and ice,
KiwiSports make it so nice.
They help you grow strong, fast and fit,
Whether you run or jump or hit.

Kiwi To keep it safe they make the rules,
For fields and courts and swimming pools.
The motto always and everywhere
Is simply this: Play hard but play fair.

Best of all as you will see
Are the coaches and umpire or referee.
Through their time and what we're taught
We can all make the most of KiwiSport.
