Supporting young women to be active their way

Driven by nationwide research that indicates a significant drop off in young women’s sport and recreation participation, Sport New Zealand has launched the #itsmymove campaign, focused on supporting young women in Aotearoa to get active and stay active. The #itsmymove campaign allows the voice of young women to influence the future of sport and active recreation. 

Check out the #ITSMYMOVE website, a one stop shop for young women, parents, and sport providers to experience the positive messaging, and work together to build better sport and recreation experiences for young women. We recommend, no matter your age, to take look at the website.


Sport Whanganui launched a local campaign to celebrate young women and their sport and active recreation stories. One of the key messages from the amazing young women who have taken part in the campaign is its not all about winning. There are many more positive reasons to be ‘active’. Over the coming months there will be more young women from our region sharing their ‘why’ messages.

Young Women in Whanganui choose ‘their active’…
