Description

KiwiSport was launched by the Prime Minister on 11th August 2009 and aims to:

  • increase the numbers of school-age children participating in organised sport - during school, after school and by strengthening links with sports clubs;
  • increase the availability and accessibility of sport opportunities for all school-aged children; and
  • support children in developing skills that will enable them to participate effectively in sport at both primary and secondary level.

KiwiSport provides funding to schools for Year 1-8 students and Year 9-13 students through the Ministry of Education and Sport New Zealand who funds regional sports trusts.
