Some kiwi kids have never experienced being part of a sports team. Sport helps to develop who we are as people, it supports the development of character and provides a sense of belonging. Our SPORTME TOO initiative supports young people that are not engaged in playing sport because of the cost of participation.
We know that sport can teach essential life skills such as, resilience, goal setting, self-responsibility, teamwork, self-belief and leadership. Kids participating in sport are happier, healthier and generally out perform their non-participant peers in academic achievement.
For some families, often the cost of team subs and kit is simply out of reach and these kids often miss out.
We believe that every child should have access to sport and aim to support season subscription fees or sports kit. If you know of a kiwi kid that is missing out on sport, please email us at email@example.com
