In the wake of COVID-19 we will work with Ministry of Health to ensure a safe environment is maintained at all times for students and adults attending the National Youth Jazz Competition being held at Baycourt Community & Arts Centre. We have a number of contingency options for delivering the event including livestreaming.

We hope you can join us at Tauranga in August!
