Our Track Record
Performance highlights 2000/2001
This chart includes funding to national sport and active-leisure organisations, the NZ Sports Foundation (to develop high-performance sport), regional sports trusts, and community clubs (through the Community Sport Fund). It also includes funds invested in Commission programmes and services.
The Maori Dimension in Sport
Maori have a passion for sport. The Commission is committed to the development of sport, fitness and leisure for Maori and has adopted a holistic approach to Maori development - embodying the concept of te wairua, hinengaro, tinana, me te whanau (the whole person, the mental and physical side within the family).
Sports Trust Serving Communities
The regional sports trusts implement Commission sport and active leisure programmes in the field. As our partners in delivering regional support, they also contributed $16.23 million of locally-generated funds to the $6.1 million provided by the Commission for the development of active, healthy, cohesive communities.
This funding goes into developing sports organisations and clubs, training volunteer coaches, officials and administrators, helping make sport happen for young people through KiwiSport and Sportfit, encouraging '30 minutes a day' through Push Play, and providing sport for Maori in a Maori setting through He Oranga Poutama.
Formal training in coaching and administration this year attracted more than 26,000 attendances. The sports trusts provided 370 regional sports organisations with support and expertise.
Sports trusts provided KiwiSport training for teachers and sport leaders (28,205 attendances) as part of our national policy on junior sport. There were more than 31,638 attendances at secondary school sport leader and sport education training.
During the year sport trusts encouraged the Push Play message in 326 Push Play-branded physical activity events, which attracted more than 265,000 attendances, a 55% increase over last year. 4,239 patients on a Green Prescription (written advice from a GP or practice nurse for a patient to be more active) worked with sports trusts in a bid to improve their health and wellbeing.
The sports trusts also work directly with iwi to provide He Oranga Poutama. This programme aims to get more Maori active in marae settings, and during the year 111,300 Maori participated in marae-based physical activity events.
Sports trusts are in partnership with their regional infrastructure, and this is a real asset. This support includes links with schools, sports organisations, iwi, local councils, and community trusts and health providers. By linking and working together we can ensure the continued development of grassroots sport and healthy active communities.
