23 October Meeting

  • Bodean Rogers has been into sport since he was knee high. Originally from Tautoro and Hokianga, he went to Kaikohe West and Kaikohe Intermediate schools before attending Northland College.

  • On Wednesday Bodean visited Kaikohe Rotary told us about his life's journey to where he is now.

  • At Northland College Bodean played almost every sport there was- primarily as a way of getting out of the classroom. That interest in sport led him to go to AUT in Auckland to study physical education. While there he met his partner, who is a hockey goalkeeper.

  • After finishing his studies Bodean returned to Kaikohe where he continued to be involved in sports and community activities. This year he took on a new job as Rugby Development Officer for Northland Rugby - encouraging youngsters to play and enjoy the game. He and his partner have a one-year-old son and are expecting another child early next year.

  • Despite not having much free time, Bodean and his partner have set up a sports academy in Kaikohe which aims to help promising youngsters develop their skills. Bodean says he has spoken with Northland College principal John Kendal and has gained access to the college's gym and other facilities. But he and his partner need help with funding for equipment.

  • It was a fascinating presentation from a Kaikohe local who has done well out of sport - even if he has had two knee reconstructions - and now wants to put something back. We wish Bodean all the best in his endeavours.
