Balance is Better

Balance is Better is an evidence-based approach. The focus of the philosophy is on why young people play sport – to have fun, be challenged, develop and improve, be part of a team or group, and enjoy time with friends.

Sport NZ works with the sector to provide quality experiences in sport for all tamariki and rangatahi (young people aged 5-18), including for those who enjoy competition as well as those who just want to have fun.

The Wheelhouse

The Wheelhouse refers to the location of the steering wheel of a ship. It’s where the crew come to discuss where they are going, what they need to do to get there and any problems they may need to consider. It’s also where plans are kept and navigation resources are used.

Occasionally ships will approach unknown waters. At this time often a pilot will come on board to help guide them through.

Like a wheelhouse our aim is to help Taranaki community organisations have important conversations about their direction, or like a pilot, assist the crew for a short time.

We’re about empowering you to make a difference in your community.
