KiwiSport is a fund that aims to:
- Increase the number of school-age children participating in organised sport - during school, after school and by strengthening links with sports clubs.
- Increase the availability and accessibility of sport opportunities for all school-aged children.
- Support children in developing skills that will enable them to participate effectively in sport at both primary and secondary level.
KiwiSport has two components; the Regional Partnership Fund (RPF) administered by Sport Manawatu and the Direct Fund, which goes directly to schools. More information about the RPF is available below.
THE KIWISPORT REGIONAL PARTNERSHIP FUND IS ABOUT PARTNERSHIPS
Sport Manawatu will invest in organisations and schools that demonstrate they are co-operating and forging partnerships with a focus on sport for school-aged children. Schools are the obvious catchment zone for kids to get involved and play sport. Organisations will be expected to contribute financially to these partnerships in addition to the support from the RPF. Potential partners: Schools, Clubs, RSOs, NSOs, Sponsors (e.g. local businesses), Councils, Community Trusts.
Our regional priority areas that have been identified are:
- Skill Development
- Coach and Volunteer Development
- More Participation Opportunities
