The Northern Kāhu are delighted to announce a new partnership with Shine Lawyers ahead of the 2022 Schick 3x3 Cup.

With the Kāhu team travelling to Invercargill this week the announcement of Shine Lawyers’ investment in women’s sport is most timely.

It adds another layer of excitement and expectancy to the upcoming Schick Cup and Northern Kāhu General Manager Matt Lacey couldn’t be more thrilled.

“We are delighted to welcome Shine Lawyers to the Kāhu whanau as one our principal partners for our 3x3 team.

“It has been a delight to deal with Angela and her team and we are thrilled to have their support.

In announcing the partnership for the Schick Cup , Managing Director of Shine Lawyers Angela Parlane emphasised the importance of supporting female athletes.

“Shine Lawyers is proud to sponsor Northern Kāhu basketball. Just as Kāhu is committed to helping others through their game, Shine Lawyers is committed to helping others through their work.”

“Our team are focused on righting wrongs for our clients. We offer legal services throughout New Zealand and have a proven track record of empowering and representing clients, shining a light on injustice, one client at a time.”

Lacey expects the Kāhu to have a strong track record in Invercargill as the tournament plays out.

“We have assembled an exciting team to compete in Invercargill and I know the players and management are thrilled that Shine have thrown their support behind the team as they bid to win the 3x3 Schick Cup.”

The Kāhu team includes Chevannah Paalvast, Casyn Buchman, Azure Anderson and Yume Negishi.

Chev Paalvast is a current Tall Fern who also boasts 3x3 experience having being a member of the New Zealand team (that included Micaela Cocks) that won gold at the 2018 3x3 FIBA Asia Cup in China.

Casyn Buchman is also a 3x3 championship winner. The American born guard was a member of the Auckland Dream team that won the Schick Cup when it was last contested in 2020.

The other two members of our team are 2022 Kāhu squad members Azure Anderson and Yume Negishi. Azure recently won a Women’s National Tertiary Championship with AUT.
