Every Body Active

Strategic direction

Sport NZ’s Towards 2032 Strategic Direction document includes the first of three four-year Strategic Plans for the period 2020-24 

The plan confirms that our efforts over the period 2020-2024 will focus on tamariki (5-11 years) and rangatahi (12-18 yearsthrough play, PE, active recreation and sport. In doing so, we aspire to reduce the drop-off in physical activity levels of rangatahi throughout their teenage years. We believe the focus on this age group will enable us to achieve the maximum possible impact with our resources. 

As part of this focus, you’ll see Sport NZ working in its kaitiaki role to positively influence the system. Over the period 2020-2024 we will also deliver upon the commitments made through the Government’s Women and Girls in Sport and Active Recreation Strategy, along with the Government’s Disability Plan. We will also take active strides forward in implementing the recommendations identified in response to the Sport Integrity Review.

Developing a culturally distinctive pathway toward Māori wellbeing

Te Pākē o Ihi Aotearoa, the Māori Outcomes Framework and the Sport NZ Outcomes Framework carry the same status in the spirit of mana ōrite (equality). It is the strength of the two frameworks that will propel us toward our vision of Every Body Active.

Creating happier, healthier people and better connected communities.

Sport NZ’s three approaches aim to create better quality experiences for participants and encourage their ongoing participation in physical activity.

Our focus is on young people (ages 5 to 18) and putting them at the centre to drive meaningful and positive change.
