Balance is Better

Below information is borrowed from Balance is Better website administered by Sport New Zealand/Ihi Aotearoa.

Balance is Better is an evidence-based philosophy to support quality sport experiences for all young people, regardless of ability, needs and motivations. It is about young people staying involved in sport for life and realising their potential at the right time.

The Balance is Better philosophy has been developed by the NZ sport system (e.g. sport organisations, leaders and administrators, schools, clubs, coaches, parents and volunteers) to support the culture change needed to provide quality sport opportunities for tamariki (5-11) and rangatahi (12-18). Sport NZ’s current focus is on rangatahi, given the decline we are seeing in teenage participation.

Balance is Better is about creating quality experiences for all young people to keep them stay active and in the game. The website is packed full of helpful information for Parents, Coaches, Leaders & Administrators & also webinars.

Ensuring all our young netball participants have balance in their sporting, and physical activities is a cause Netball Wellington Centre and Netball New Zealand remain passionate about.
