SPORT NEW ZEALAND TAKING A STAND TO IMPROVE YOUTH SPORT!

Sport New Zealand are working alongside Hockey NZ, Cricket NZ, Netball NZ, Football NZ and Rugby NZ to make a substantial change in how the youth of New Zealand are experiencing sport. “We’re taking a stand to bring the fun and development focus back to sport for all young people,” Sport NZ chief Peter Miskimmin said.

“This includes pushing back against early specialisation, over-emphasis on winning, and other factors that are driving young New Zealanders away from sport.”

This is huge step to making sport more enjoyable and accessible for all New Zealanders.
