HELPING YOUNG NEW ZEALANDERS

Inspiring youth through sport to create a brighter future for young people

The iSPORT Foundation believe every child has a right to be physically active, have access to positive role models and be the best they can be regardless of their circumstances. By levelling the playing field, educating youth and providing support, the iSPORT Foundation will develop our next generation of employable Kiwis.

The iSPORT Foundation relies on the support of New Zealander’s just like you to help our young athletes reach their full potential. You can support a child directly on Our Kids page or donate to the iSPORT Foundation and we will make sure another child plays sport this year.

KIDS WITH CHARACTER

We believe sport and character development have the ability to positively transform the lives of people and communities, providing a connection and sense of belonging toward a greater good.  

Our Kids With Character programme represents the energy of our founders and ambassadors to teach key character behaviours to kids using sport as the vehicle. Our goal is to teach young people essential skills of self-awareness, self-respect, self-responsibility, self-discipline, self-belief, self-confidence, self-control and self-forgiveness.  

The skills taught are essential for our young people to feel connected and inspired to positively contribute to the future of New Zealand.

SPORTME TOO

Our SportMeToo programme aims to identify kids that are not engaged in playing sport either because of the cost of participation or who have disengaged due to either – the quality of their earlier sporting experiences or a lack of enjoyment of traditional sports offered and provide an opportunity for them to engage and connect in structured and unstructured sport.

This is a unique programme that enables and improves the accessibility to sport by levelling the playing field for youth with financial barriers.

BALLS FOR SCHOOLS

We want more kids participating in sport and believe that every child should have the opportunity to explore and play.  Many schools and clubs have a very limited amount of sports equipment and financial resource to maintain enough sports equipment to go around.  We work with sponsors and partners to gift balls to identified groups that need them the most.

The iSPORT Foundation have teamed up with Silver Fern and Rebel Sport to give away thousands of balls to identified lower decile schools.

SPORTS GRANTS

The iSPORT Foundation provides a platform that enables kids aged 12-18 to raise the necessary funds to achieve their goals in the sport they love, no matter their circumstances. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to fulfil their sporting dreams.  Our crowdfunding platform is a successful medium that empowers kids to connect and engage with their local community and wider network to attract donations to their campaign.
