Ages 5-12 Years
We learn, grow, set and achieve goals, develop and master movement skills through sport and recreation. It is crucial we provide these important learning experiences for our children right from infancy.
Enjoyment and fun are key drivers for children participating in sport with performance, challenge and improvement being motivators also. Multiple sport and recreation experiences are essential.
The more we can improve participation in sport amoung young people, the greater the prospects are that they will carry on that participation into their later lives.
Sport NZ will continue to work with and bring together key organisations to support the delivery of sport and recreation opportunities to young New Zealanders.
