Sport Bay of Plenty

GO4it programme


KiwiSport consultation across Bay of Plenty recognised the need for a fundamental skills development programme for 5-10 year olds. In consultation with more than 50 education and sport & recreation specialists, the GO4it programme was created. GO4it was launched in February 2011 with 22 schools throughout the Bay of Plenty region participating in the pilot year, spread across six core clusters around the region. There are now 41 schools in 2017 participating in the GO4it Programme.

What is GO4it?

GO4it is a comprehensive fundamental skills programme that focuses on key skill sets that develop lifelong skills required to participate in sport and recreation for life. GO4it consists of Junior GO4it for year 0-2 students and Senior GO4it for years 3-6 students.

This programme has a long-term physical literacy focus that delivers age appropriate activities throughout the whole school. GO4it is coordinated by Sport Bay of Plenty and delivered by regional GO4it deliverers. The programme aims to up-skill students and teachers in fundamental movement and sport skills.
