KIWISPORT REGIONAL PARTNERSHIP FUND 2015 - 2018:

Sport Wellington recently submitted our Wellington Region KiwiSport Regional Partnership Plan to Sport NZ for the period of 2015 - 2018.  As part of the application process Sport Wellington was required to undertake community consultation to find out what the barriers are for participation in organised sport by young people. The community was invited to provide their feedback through different opportunities including attending one of the KiwiSport forums, filling in the online survey/questionnaires or providing feedback face-to-face during a session with a Sport Wellington staff member or partner organisation.

The application to Sport NZ was approved for three years for the period of 1 July 2015 - 30 June 2018.

The Wellington KiwiSport Regional Partnership Fund Plan 2015-18 identified the following priorities, click here for an overview

  • Coaching - quality and quantity
  • Quality intra and inter-school sport
  • Skill development and confidence building
  • Family and Community Engagement (particularly in low participation groups)
