Coaches Count is a Hillary Commission
initiative to recognise the great work coaches do for sport in New Zealand. Coaches
Count aims to recruit new coaches, hold on to those we already have and offer
support and rewards to all our coaches.
Coaches Count aims to get
more parents and the community involved in sport. It encourages schools, clubs
and the community to work together so that the load is shared. Coaches Count makes
your move into coaching easy.
Following consultation with
a number of sports, the Commission developed the Coaches Count promotion to help
fill this gap. The promotion kicked off in September 1997 with a TV and radio
campaign promoting the coaching message to the wider public.
Coaches Count puts strong
emphasis on equipping sports with the tools they need to attract more coaches
and to thank the ones they already have. To find out more on this promotion, follow
