Strategic Outcome Statement: By 2020 Auckland sporting organisations, coaches, teachers, athletes and parents will be aligned to a values-based approach that drives positive coaching and athlete development behaviour.
The Aktive Coaching & Talent Development team, in conjunction with its Regional Sports Trusts delivery partners, is building a systematic approach to coach and athlete development delivery as part of The Auckland Approach to Community Sport.
By engaging with sporting organisations, coaches, teachers, parents and athletes, a new co-designed Strategic Coaching plan is now in place until 2020. The plan primarily focuses on the needs of young people and ensures capability build across all three coaching communities – Foundation, Development and Performance, to drive and sustain positive behaviour change within local participation communities. In addition, a fundamental focus of the coaching plan is to deliver initiatives that target young girls aged 10-18 years old, Māori, Pacific Island and Indian ethnicities within local communities in order to greater drive participation through quality experiences.
