Congratulations to the Wellington marching teams for taking out first place in all grades at the North Island Marching Championships held in Wellington over the weekend!

Happy International Volunteer Day! International Volunteer Day (IV Day) is a United Nations led initiative that offers an opportunity for volunteer organizations and individual volunteers to make their contributions visible. One billion people volunteer around the world, all giving their time and skills to improve communities, save lives, fix things that are broken, and bring people together. The work of volunteers across all sport and recreation is a big part of this global movement of volunteers, and has major impact on the wider community. More and more, their work is playing a crucial role in the successes of our sport organisations. So please take the time on IV Day to recognise your volunteers for their work and the impact their work has on your organisation.

Sport Wellington recently hosted a leadership workshop which was attended by national and regional leaders from the sport and recreation sector. This was the first workshop to come from the leadership framework that Sport New Zealand, Sport Wellington and the sector have been jointly developing over the past 20 months. The focus was on 'leading my organisation' and 'leading others' and also provided an excellent opportunity for the various sport and recreation participants to network. The learnings from this ‘pilot’ will be included in the other four settings of leadership (leading self - leading teams - leading leaders - governing organisations). The full leadership system will be incrementally rolled out in 2018 and made available to the sport and recreation sector.

It was an absolute privilege to have Olympic gold medalist and current Supreme Halberg winner Lisa Carrington - Athlete share her experiences and insights with young Wellington athletes on the Pathway to Podium and Wellington City Council Sports Talent Development programmes. Contributing to society in a positive way and being a ‘better person’ is very important to Lisa, and she encouraged that this be top of the list for all athletes. This was the fourth seminar held this year as part of the two programmes, both managed by the Sport Wellington Performance Hub.
