"For me, it's always been about value. How can I add value for my children and anyone I coach? The true key to success is that, whoever you coach, you add value in whichever community that they choose to walk in. For me that's been New Zealand Rugby, and now United States Baseball" 🏉⚾ Words of wisdom from Don Tricker this morning at our Sport Wellington Performance Hub Breakfast event. Huge thanks to Wellington Hospitality Group for helping us put on an epic event at such short notice!

The New Zealand Recreation Association Grow Yourself Scholarship is up for grabs and applications are open now. The scholarship is open to all NZRA members to support the development of individuals who continue to make a positive contribution to the Parks, Sport or Recreation sector. More info:

The KiwiSport RPF aims to:

-          Increase the number of school-aged children participating in organised sport;

-          Increase the availability and accessibility of sport opportunities for all school-aged children;

-          Support children to develop skills that will enable them to participate effectively in sport at both primary and secondary level.


From 2018 onwards, some changes to the KiwiSport Regional Partnership Fund priorities have occurred. To see “more kids, more opportunities, more skills” occurring in our communities most effectively, applications that have a focus on the following will be prioritised:

-          Programmes / approaches that engage and support young people in low-participating communities to ensure they receive appropriate physical activity or sporting opportunities. The following groups have been determined to have lower rates of engagement in sport:

Low decile communities
Girls aged between 10 and 18 years

-          KiwiSport funding for in-curriculum initiatives will be minimal over 2017/18. The School Sport Futures project (Sport NZ) identified an issue with sport-based programmes replacing quality physical education, particularly in primary schools, and therefore Sport NZ has recommended this reduction.

If you have a large project that spans regionally, provides new, or expands existing, sporting opportunities for school-aged children that requires funding, then we would encourage you to send in your EOI application. KiwiSport funding is not intended to maintain the same initiative long term as funding is only confirmed until June 2019.

KiwiSport Funding Requirements for all applications can be found here.

KiwiSport Funding Considerations for all applications can be found here.



If you would like to meet with our KiwiSport Senior Advisor, Amanda Taylor, to discuss a potential KiwiSport application and to gain clarity around the expectations, requirements and understand the quality of applications that Sport Wellington are seeking,  please email to make an appointment.
