Workshops

Key to the Good Sports mission is helping New Zealand adults improve their own awareness about how they behave in children’s sport, and why they behave the way they do.

We run a series of courses and workshops to provoke adults to critically think about how they support children in sport. We also train community champions in the art of provoking adults to critically think about how they support children in sport.

Our main offerings include:


rugby kids aktive sportGood Sports Developers Course

The Good Sports Developers Course prepares community sport professionals to engage parents, coaches and other key adult influencers in their communities around what makes a positive sporting experience for children.

Good Sports Developers learn our unique approach to helping groups of adults work through the key issues that can make or break a young person’s experience in sport. Many programmes addressing children’s sport use a carrot and stick approach that punishes or stigmatises negative behaviour. We believe for substantial transformative change to be achieved, adults who affect children’s sport need to be engaged in powerful conversation.

Should your group programmes be free or paidSector Workshops

Whether it be sideline behavior, early-specialisation, over-use injury, burn out, disaffection by children with sport or adult control, issues in children’s sport are continuing to become more prevalent in New Zealand communities. It is important the community sport sector has a full understanding of these issues, how they can be observed and where the issues come from.

Providing a platform for guided discussion between individuals from within the community sport sector allows for insights to be gained and supports the culture change, Good Sports is aiming to achieve around children’s sport.

The Good Sports Sector workshop focuses on conversation, not lecture. We use powerful stories and evidence-based research from around the world to get people talking.
