Running Secondary School Sport Guide

Whether it’s on the court, on the field, in and on the water, or on our streets and backyards, sport is part of our DNA. And our time at school is often when we will shape the experiences, skills, attitudes and friends that will develop our love of sport and games and set us up for a lifetime in sport and recreation.

This guide is designed to make your role easier by pointing you to examples of good practice, case studies, templates and tools, to help you do your job.

Thanks for your commitment to developing a love of sport in our young people and for your fantastic work in putting together programmes, events and support that will ensure sport continues to be a feature of the school years of our young people, and a significant part of New Zealand’s sporting culture.

BayTrust CoachForce

The purpose of CoachForce is to provide coaching workshops to up-skill coaches/teachers and parent coaches (not children!) to run more effective training sessions, gain more confidence and become better coaches by learning new skills that are appropriate for the children’s age and experience level.

We recommend that your school adopt a policy under which school sports fees are raised by $2-4 per child to cover the cost of up-skilling all coaches.
