Harbour Sport Strategic Plan



Harbour Sport, where too much

sport is never enough.


Lead and support the development

of the sport and recreation

community within North Harbour.

Statement of Intent:

Harbour Sport is a lead facilitator for the

development of sport and recreation in the Harbour

region. Development of the sector’s capability is a

key driving force for Harbour Sport. Through Harbour

Sport’s influence more people will participate in

sport and recreation.

We are a source of expertise, support and

experience. We are change agents supporting

governance, management, leadership and investing

in, and modelling, best practice for organisations

delivering or supporting sport and recreation.

We are advocates for the sport and recreation

community. We provide research, understanding

and knowledge of the sporting landscape for the

Harbour Community.

Financial sustainability and diversity will be at

the core of Harbour Sport’s potential to achieve

and deliver quality outcomes to our stakeholders.

Harbour Sport will strive to diversify income streams

to provide ongoing support within the sport and

recreation community.



Chairman’s Report

The 2014-15 year has seen our focus move firmly back onto the core business of

facilitating growth in the proportion of active people of all ages in our region following

the changes brought about by the creation of Aktive Auckland Sport and Recreation.

We want to continue to maximise the potential that our local knowledge provides us,

knowledge of the unique needs of our region to ensure that we do see more people more

active more often.

With Minister Jonathan Coleman being both Minister of Sport and Health there is

further evidence of the strong connection between the two. At Harbour Sport, as

elsewhere, we know that supporting more people to be more active more often means

less demand for the health dollar. It is worth noting that some of our work comes from

health contracts because we have the capability through staff expertise to deliver on

their wishes. We want to continue to be active in this area of getting people active and

through this, hopefully reducing potentially heavier demands on the health budget.

While we know our part of Auckland really well including the sports clubs, schools and

other organisations that seek to get people active and the key personnel throughout,

we continue to work closely with the other three Regional Sports Trusts operating

across the city and with Aktive whose role is slightly different. We continue to share

best practice with our fellow RSTs and where a very good initiative succeeds in our area

which may do equally well in another, we look to support its establishment there.

Over the past year we have continued to support the volunteers running clubs with

administration, financial management and coaching expertise. We have supported staff

in schools to get more students more active and also trained coaches. We have got

yet more students onto bikes across our area and continued to run our main events

successfully. Sound financial management has seen us remain on the right side of the

ledger but there is no doubt that more funding would mean that our influence could

stretch further.

My thanks go to our CEO Toni-Maree Carnie and her staff. Stability and expertise in

leadership has enabled a high degree of staff stability in the face of change and this

makes our organisation well placed to support more people to be more active more

often in our region.

Chief Executive’s Report

Sport in its truest sense is still a part of the social fabric of being a New Zealander.

But being a New Zealander is looking more and more different each year in the North

Harbour region. Sport not only has its health and economic value, it provides community

development, leadership, engagement and the development of social and physical

wellbeing within the community.

With the Ministerial roles of Health and Sport now combined, there is a confirmation for

Harbour Sport of the value of the close links that we have maintained between health

and sport and a mandate to continue to work closely with the health sector and other

areas of the community that bring a social vibrancy from healthy and active people.


Continued growth in our region puts additional pressure on local facilities and demands

that Harbour Sport as a Regional Sports Trust supports the community in ensuring there

is a future provision for the needs of our growing sporting community in influencing

those that control the purse strings.

Harbour Sport works closely with Local Boards to communicate local community

needs and then in return update them on the progress that we are making to grow local

participation in sport and recreation.

2014 – 15 was a year of

many successes starting

Auckland ...”

2014 – 15 was a year of many successes starting with the Choose Change contract

where Harbour Sport was the lead agency amongst the RSTs across Auckland for a

$500,000 contract managing change amongst people with Type 2 diabetes and pre

diabetes. Evaluation data to date is extremely positive and we are hopeful that there will

be ongoing funding available in the future.

Another area of growth is that of our Bike work. Bike falls under a number of aspects

of our business – sport, recreation and active transport. We know that more people

cycling results in a number of positive aspects for our community, but there needs to

be behaviour changes to bring about community engagement and uptake. Our work in

schools and with Asian adults in particular has given us glimpses of the changes that can

be made and the positive impact on the community.

The ActivAsian objectives remain constant for Harbour Sport, improving access to

information, improving sporting opportunities especially for school aged children and

their parents and encouraging more Asian (in particular, Chinese, Korean, Indian and

Filipino) people to participate in sport and recreation.

Significant population growth in the Asian population ensures a strong focus for Harbour

Sport in ensuring Asian engagement mirrors our population. This year’s focus has been

on growing a volunteer base of Asians volunteering on events, getting experience in NZ

sport and recreation and correspondingly receiving endorsements from Harbour Sport

for community support

An area that Harbour Sport have applied increased resource to is that of the Pasifika

community. New programmes have been developed and others enhanced to ensure a full

spectrum of the Pasifika community is catered for. Programmes include SportSPasifik,

Polysports, Equipped and Niumovement.

Schools and their students are a crucial focus area wherever sport and recreation are

a focus. There is no doubt that academic achievement is a most important aspect of

education but increasingly the evidence points to a corresponding increase in academic

achievement where sport and physical activity have also been a focus. Where secondary

school sport numbers have plateaued across New Zealand, North Harbour has managed

to see a small increase, so it is vital that continued engagement opportunities are

provided for those who are not otherwise engaged in sport and recreation.



Chief Executive’s Report

RSOs and Clubs are at the fore of much of our work. Their capability impacts the

positive experience of so many people connected into formal sport. To support RSO and

club growth and development Harbour Sport supports strategic planning, volunteer

management, coach development, facility development, risk management, health and

safety, child protection, financial planning and governance support.

Consistently, coaching is highlighted as a real area of need. There are never enough

quality coaches so Harbour Sport works with partners to assist in recruiting, retaining

and developing coaches at all levels. Specific successes have been within the Coach

Support Initiative where 12 secondary schools and 6 primary schools have been

involved. 540 coaches have been developed and this has impacted 6657 athletes.

The Harbour Sport commitment to events continues to be demonstrated in a full time

role growing our current events and looking for new events and partnerships in the

community. The Shore to Shore had 44 schools involved and 6004 participants and

the Mud Rush saw 1378 participants take on 19 challenging obstacles. The Massey

University Sport Excellence Awards was won for the second year in a row by Lydia Ko.

To our key financial partners, we acknowledge that there are multiple partner

opportunities out there but Harbour Sport has always endeavoured to demonstrate

true excellence in everything that it does and believes that it is a positive and beneficial

strategic and delivery partner.

Finally my thanks to the Board and staff, to whom I am extremely grateful that you see fit

to share your expertise, skills and knowledge in this organisation and with the Harbour

Sport Capability

Developing the Capability of our Sports


The Sport Capability Team’s main objective is to foster

and develop unique partnerships, working to implement

innovative, sustainable programmes for the benefit of the

whole community. The provision of best practice examples,

training, development and support for the people and

volunteers that work in the sports sector has been our

primary focus in achieving this objective.

Harbour Sport provides capability development

opportunities in the community through a variety of

Specific, Targeted and Generic programmes. Supporting the

development of capability in Regional Sports Organisations,

Clubs, targeted communities, the Asian Community,

Volunteers and Schools (Secondary and Primary) remains

our key focus and is achieved by developing and utilising a

number of different initiatives. This approach has proven to

be very successful as the interventions have been tailored

to the specific needs of the user. Interventions utilised

include generic workshops, specific workshops, one-toone

and group organisational planning and development,

WOF, toolkits, template development, and the mentoring

of key people in sports organisations. Specific topics and

support has included Strategic Planning, Governance,

Leadership, Volunteer Development, Coach Development,

Club Development, Officials Development and programme

management and development.

The 2014/2015 year has seen our continued work with the

Sport NZ targeted sports, in addition to Harbour Sport’s

regionally identified sports. Harbour Sport has successfully

implemented a number of different programmes /

interventions to the benefit of a number of different sports

Workshop Programme

The “Sector Knowledge” days have been designed for

CEO’s and Sport Development staff around specific topics

relevant to supporting their organisation. Topics have

included Auckland Council Engagement; Unitary Plan,

Long Term Plan (LTP), Local Board, ASB funding, Child

Protection, North Harbour Sports Summit. This forum had

over 120 participants.

The Harbour Sport Club Workshop Programme was

reduced to specifically cater for the identified needs of the

community and focused on two key areas as requested by

local clubs. The two topic areas requested and delivered





Volunteer Management


The continued growth in the Asian community has seen

programmes to evolve to meet the varying needs of the

Asian community as they engage more into Sport and

Recreation. The ActivAsian programme has three key

a particular focus on school-aged children.

recreational opportunities for the Asian community.

Encouraging more Asian people to participate in sport

The engagement and removal of barriers in varying

cultures is often difficult. The strategy implemented was

to build a system which allows the traditional sporting

frameworks to be developed and grown in their ability to



Sport Capability

accept, initialise and provide opportunities to the quickly

growing Asian community. This has been done by a variety

of interventions targeted at the multilevel components of

sport in the community. Concurrent development has also

been in the communication and engagement of the Asian

community. Based again around education, communication

and linking of key leaders in the community; structures in

the system have been developed to foster linkages into the

existing community.


ActivAsian Event support

• The Chinese New Year festival is hosted annually

in a highly populated Asian community. Each

year organisers are facilitated to ensure sport

and recreation is represented at the festival. Our

ActivAsian programmes are promoted as well as

supporting sports to use the opportunity to promote

their sport programmes to the community.



ActivAsian Volunteer Group formed

• 38 volunteers of Asian descent received training and

development to participate and support RSO and

Clubs needing volunteers for events.

ActivAsian Sport Development work

• Harbour Sport continues to work with RSO’s and

clubs to develop membership strategies to engage

the Asian community. Significant success has been

achieved with the Rangitoto Badminton project.

Football and Basketball are now looking to also

adopt the strategies.


ActivAsian Relationship Development

• Using the ActivAsian toolkit and Asian Sport

Engagement Model we have been able to slowly share

and educate best practice initiatives. As knowledge

has been gained more groups including schools, PE

departments, community groups, and sports clubs

have wanted to build their ability to engage and

form partnerships. Organisations include: Albany

Newcomers Network, Kristin Chinese Parents

Group, the Korean School of Auckland, Harbour

RSO’s, Harbour Clubs, Harbour Secondary schools

with high Asian population, Harbour primary schools

with high Asian population


ActivRecreAsian project was completed with some

significant successes:

• KWANZ has also developed a weekly bush walking

activity every Thursday for their members. The

regular weekly numbers of the bush walking group

has increased from 10 to 40 over the year.

• 39 Chinese people and 75 Korean people in total

have completed outdoor leadership training.

The participants were made up from 4 different

community groups.

• Korean cycle training : 15 Korean women participated

in a Learn to Ride programme.

• Chinese cycle training: 30 Chinese students

completed cycling Grade 1 training

• 16 members from The NZ Chinese Youth Trust and

7 volunteers are enrolled in the Duke of Edinburgh



Sport Capability

Coach Development

The development of the Harbour Region Coaching Plan was

completed which aligned with the Aktive Auckland Sport &

Recreation Coaching Plan and Sport New Zealand Coaching

Plan. Coaching is an area of need in the region; highlighted

again through our community consultation through

KiwiSport. This consultation’s number one priority was the

lack of experienced coaches and volunteers. The need to

recruit, retain and develop coaches at all levels is significant.

2015 has seen the development and strengthening of some

key coaching projects. The CSI project and the Growing

Coaches programme have continued to provide quality

coach development opportunities for secondary school

and primary school coaches. The Talent, Leadership,

Character pilot project at Mahurangi College has provided

22 students and 6 coaches with regular development

around developing leadership skills and character and

is seeing some fantastic results. The Coach Developer

training program also has allowed for more quality people

within our region to develop facilitation skills so they can

better provide coach development opportunities for their

respective organisations, which ultimately grows the

number of coaches impacted. Some key numbers from

2015 are:


Coach Support Initiative (CSI)

Through the CSI we have seen the power of quality coaching

and the impact strong coaching leadership can have on

improving sports participation and wider community links.

Through this project two schools now receive funding

to create links with primary schools and clubs all other

secondary schools are actively pushing to make links with

other sporting organisations in their region. In the three

years the CSI project has been running, 12 new links

between primary schools and secondary schools have been

SportSPasifik is a project targeting the North Shore Pacific

Island community aimed at increasing participation in

sport and recreation. As a priority, the project continues to

support and address specific barriers this community faces

in effectively engaging in sport and recreation and living

physically active lives. All SportSPasifik healthy lifestyles

programmes are currently delivered in the Kaipatiki region

where most of North Shore’s Pacific population reside

(47%). Over the past year, SportSPasifik has significantly

expanded and the project has reached each life stage (under

5’s through to older adults).

The programmes offered during the year were:


A sport and recreation holiday programme for Pacific Island

children aged 6-12 years. Includes fun games and activities

with ‘healthy eating’ nutritional messages. A total of 134

children participated over 24 days in four school holidays.

This programme is delivered in Beach Haven during the

school holidays and will be expanding into the Northcote

area starting in September 2015.


Aims to improve the sports skills, fitness, confidence and selfesteem

of teenage girls through sports and fitness sessions,

nutrition and mentoring. We work closely with Northcote

College and Northcote Intermediate School resulting in 34

girls being actively engaged in the programme.

attended each session.


Community Sport

Active Communities


The main focus of support offered to sports organisations

and schools in the Harbour region continues to be based

upon the three R’s, Recruiting, Rewarding and Retaining

volunteers, the Superheros of sport. Two Volunteer

Workshops were delivered during the year and the

Volunteers Toolkit and the REVISE Assessment Toolkit

resources, which combine to support organisations to

develop and grow their volunteer base, are regularly used

by a number of different organisations in our community.

They have also been shared with other RSTs and NSOs as

examples of best practice.

Harbour Sport’s Volunteer of the Month award continues

to be supported by the nationwide initiative through

Lotto NZ. The winner, who has delivered outstanding and

selfless work into the community, receives a $500 voucher

to be used to purchase clothing and equipment for their

organisation / school. Each winner is recognised on the

Harbour Sport website and is a nominee for the Volunteer

of the Year Award at the Harbour Sport Sports Excellence

Awards. This year saw our winner, Dennis Mroczkowski

Ĥ 85% felt the physical activity suggested was appropriate

for them

Ĥ 80% are motivated to get/stay physically active

Ĥ 82% of GRx participants are aware of and understand

the benefits of physical activity.

There have been increased referrals for individuals with pre

and type 2 diabetes and in response to this a Grx Diabetes

exercise group started at Glenfield Leisure with over 40

participants attending. As well as this, referrals from the

Pacific community increased which resulted in the Active

Seniors Pacific exercise class starting.

Choose Change pre and

Type 2 Diabetes Pilot project

The Choose Change project was funded by the Ministry

of Health to test an innovative delivery model to improve

Green Prescription best practice in the management of prediabetes

and type 2 diabetes in at-risk target populations.



Active Communities

The Choose Change project was a 6 month intervention

delivered across Auckland by the 4 Regional Sports Trusts

who each targeted one high risk ethnic group; Counties

Manukau Sport (South: Pacific Island), Harbour Sport

(North: NZ European/other), Sport Auckland (Central:

South Asian) and Sport Waitakere (West: Maori). Harbour

Sport was the project manager.

Overall, 331 people with pre or type 2 diabetes were

enrolled with 287 (87%) completing the intensive stage

(week 1-12)





Overall 78% and 80% of participants reduced their

HbA1c at 12 and 24 weeks respectively. 87% of intake

1 participants reduced their HbA1c from baseline at 52

weeks, 6 months after completion of the programme.

94% of Maori participants reduced their HbA1c which

was noticeably higher than the other ethnicities whose

percentage reduction was between 72% and 74% at 24


Major risk factors for diabetes were improved in the

majority of participants at 24 weeks: weight decreased

in more than 70% and waist circumference reduced in

more than 78%


Other factors also improved for participants at 24

weeks: decreased blood pressure (81%), decreased fat

mass (71%), and increased physical activity (89%)



Over 91% of participants indicated that each key aspect

was useful in assisting them achieve their healthy

lifestyle goals apart from psychology which 74% rated

as useful.

Over 90% of respondents broadly agreed with 7 positive

statements about how they felt in regard to their health

and well-being at the end of the intensive stage.

Early Childhood

Harbour Sport’s new programme “Movement Matters”

has been developed over the past year and looks to upskill

early childhood educators and parents on Fundamental

Movement Skills and physical literacy. 2 workshops have

been delivered to 9 teachers and 24 parents and one

kindergarten has received 15 physical activity and teacher

mentoring sessions. A Locomotor Activity Manual has been

produced which will sit alongside future delivery. Plans are

underway to engage a further 60 Early Childhood Centres

in the coming 12 months.

Cycle Skills Training

Harbour Sport’s cycling work continues to expand with large

cycle skills training projects being delivered in targeted

schools. In the past year 646 year 7-9 students from 3

schools have received 6-12 hours of grade 2 (on-road) cycle

skills training. Outcomes have been very positive as follows:

next 6 months.

A cycle skills training package has been delivered by

Harbour Sport staff in schools across Auckland due to

in-depth expertise in cycle skills training. Delivery has

occurred in Freeman’s Bay Primary and Te Hurihi Primary

on Waiheke Island. In total Harbour Sport has trained 52

teachers across Auckland to become cycle skills instructors

in schools.

Advocacy and Sector Knowledge

Harbour Sport has actively supported increasing the

funding of increased/improved cycling infrastructure in

the past year with presentations to the Skypath Resource

Consent hearing, submission to the Northcote Safe Cycle

Route Consultation and to the Safer Cycle Panel. Harbour

Sport has a staff member on the National Cycle Skills

Advisory group and is a key member of the Regional Round

Table Netowrk meeting, collaborating with other sector


Events: Harbour Sport has promoted and provided support

to the Bike the Bridge event as well as the Bubs on Bikes

event at Onepoto Primary.


Business Development

A positive but challenging year for Harbour Sport and its commercial partners. The

need to generate more income through commercial partnerships is a reality. Harbour

Sport’s events; Mud Rush, Shore to Shore and Sporting Excellence Awards providing

fantastic exposure for partners involved and the further development of Harbour Sport

programmes has created some more commercial opportunities.

Development of a Harbour Sport events team allowed Harbour Sport to provide a more

professional service to its partners. A greater service has allowed more opportunities to

leverage partners and increase their involvement. This has also stimulated interest from

some new commercial partners.

Local Boards continue to work with Harbour Sport to shape their local communities by

using sport and recreation to develop health, social and economic benefits, as well as

providing an enhanced sense of identity and wellbeing.

Charitable Trusts and Gaming funders have provided essential funding for the many

important sport and recreation programmes and projects throughout the year.

Harbour Sport has an increased investment into events, programmes and services for

the new financial year. The target is to increase revenue back into sport in the Harbour

region so we can continue to support the local community.


Harbour Sport has a fantastic group of motivated and engaged partners supporting

events, programmes and the operations of Harbour Sport. We thank them for their

continued support:

Reporting Entity

Harbour Sport Trust is a Charitable Trust incorporated under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957 and is registered as such with

the Inland Revenue Department. The Trust is also a registered charity (CC 37293).

The trust has chosen to adopt generally accepted accounting practice as defined by Financial Reporting Standards and

Statements of Standard Accounting Practice.

Generally accepted accounting practices have been used in the measurement and reporting of earnings and financial

position on a historical cost basis.

Differential Reporting

By virtue of its lack of public accountability and size, the Trust is a qualifying entity in terms of the Framework for Differential

Reporting. The Trust has taken advantage of all available differential reporting exemptions.

(ii) Income Recognition

The Trust received grants from Aktive - Auckland Sport and Recreation, the Auckland Council, the Ministry of Health,

various Trusts and income in the form of sponsorships, event and course fees, interest and donations. Income is recognised

when received, although where income is related to activities to be carried out in a future year, this income is carried

forward to that year.

(iii) Fixed Assets

All fixed assets are initially recorded at cost.

Depreciation has been calculated on the diminishing value basis, using rates which reflect the expected useful life of the


The rates used are: Buildings 2%-12% DV

Furniture & Fittings 25% DV

Office Equipment 25%-67% DV

Computer Equipment 40%-60% DV

Motor Vehicles 40% DV

Sports Equipment 40% DV

(iv) Goods and Services Tax

The financial statements have been prepared on a GST exclusive basis except for receivables and trade payables. Any tax

owing or refundable at balance date is shown in the Balance Sheet. GST is accounted for on an invoice basis.

(v) Accounts Receivable

Accounts Receivable are valued at estimated realisable value. An estimate is made for doubtful debts based on a review of

all outstanding amounts at year end. Bad Debts are written off during the period in which they are identified.

(vi) Income Taxation

No income taxation has been provided for in the financial statements as Harbour Sport Trust is registered as a Charitable

Trust for income taxation purposes.


Notes to the Financial Statements - FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2015

(vii) Income in Advance

Income has been received during 2014/2015 which relates to events planned for 2015/2016. In these cases, the income

(viii) Long Term Maintenance

During 2000, the Trust developed a cyclical maintenance plan. The Trust accounted for its cyclical maintenance obligations

for the first time in the 2000/2001 Annual Accounts. In accordance with FRS-15, the Trust has identified that it has an

obligation to a third party to maintain its building, that there will be an outflow of resources relating to the maintenance of

the building and that a reliable estimate of that outflow can be made. A review of the plan was conducted by OPUS Building

Consultants in October 2003, with a further extensive review of interior and exterior maintenance being completed in


(ix) Leased Assets

Leases under which the Trust assumes substantially all risks and rewards incidental to ownership, have been classified as

finance leases and are capitalised. The asset and the corresponding liability are recorded at inception of the lease at the

lower of the fair value of the leased asset, or at amounts equivalent to the discounted present value of minimum lease

payments including residual values.

Finance charges are apportioned over the terms of the respective leases.

Capitalised leased assets are depreciated over their expected useful lives in accordance with rates established for other

similar assets.

(X) Changes in Accounting Policy

There have been no significant changes in accounting policies from those adopted in the prior financial year.

A donation of $52,500 was received during the 1999 year from North Harbour Rugby Referees as a contribution towards

the cost of construction of the Sports House. This amount was included as income for the 1999 year.

In return for the amount donated, Harbour Sport will lease a portion of Sports House to North Harbour Rugby Referees on

a rent free basis for the remaining period of the lease, which expires in the year 2019.

Under the lease agreement with North Harbour Rugby Referees, all future operational expenses for that portion of the

building, will be the responsibility of North Harbour Rugby Referees. Should the lease agreement be terminated before

its full lease term, Harbour Sport will not be liable for any interest or penalties towards North Harbour Rugby Referees.

as a matter of prudent financial management the Board maintains a reserve cash fund equivalent to up to six months

operating costs.
