FULL-TIME STUDENT YOUTH PLAYERS
Youth players will get a 50% discount on any Congress event. You must have your Year of birth registered with NZB for this to automatically calculate. Your club should have provided NZB with this so your levy is calculated accurately, so you should not have to do a thing, but if you go to pay and the discount is not offered, contact NZB immediately.
All prices are per person in New Zealand Dollars and include GST. Our refund policy is 100% before the start of Congress, with the Organisers having flexibility on refunds against written requests after that date.
