KiwiSport is a New Zealand Government funding initative to support sport for school-aged children. This funding is available, by application, to groups offering new or enhanced sporting opportunities for young people between the ages of five and 18.
KiwiSport aims to:
- Increase the number of school-aged children participating in organised sport
- Increase the availability and accessibility of sport opportunities for all school-aged children
- Support children to develop skills that enable them to participate confidently in sport
Through KiwiSport funding, local Regional Sporting Organisations have been enabled to deliver programmes in schools.
