Sport Bay of Plenty

Club Assistance

The Community Sport Team aims to enhance the effectiveness and capability of regional sport in the Bay of Plenty in a number of ways.

We assist Regional Sporting Organisations (RSOs) and clubs to become more efficient and effective organisations to deliver sport. We work alongside them and assist to develop systems and structures that will ensure they achieve their goals and are sustainable in the future.

This includes work on strategic plans, development of position descriptions for committees, project development with councils, coach development and volunteer training. For club development resources that may be of assistance to your club please click here.

Sport Bay of Plenty recognises the important contribution that volunteers make to the sport sector as well as the outstanding achievements of bay athletes.

These are highlighted through a variety of recognition strategies including the annual Bay of Plenty Sports Awards and Volunteer Breakfasts. We also hold a number of interactive workshops for sports clubs and volunteers throughout the year. Visit our Worskshops and Forums page to find out more.
