He pānui nō te Kaunihera ō Tāmaki Makaurau

Our goal is a world-class city where parks, leisure facilities,

sports and recreation programmes are widely available to

everyone. Whether it’s young children or seniors, social sport

or clubs, or leisure and walks in parks, we want people to have

access to a wide range of activities that contribute to healthy,

active lifestyles.

Auckland Council provides 43 leisure and recreation facilities

and 240 sports parks from Rodney to Franklin, often partnering

with community networks and sport and recreation organisations.

In the past year, the council’s commitment has included five facility

partnership projects, seven multi-sport partnerships, and a Regional

Sport and Recreation Grants programme to support increased

participation.The council has also completed 21 Local Board Sport

and Recreation State of Play reports to help with decision-making

at neighbourhood level.

The council worked closely with Aktive - Auckland Sport &

Recreation, and engaged with over 75 sports organisations, on

developing the Auckland Sport Sector: Facilities Priorities Plan

– a coordinated, integrated and sector-based approach for

providing future sports facilities.

The council has also worked with Aktive on the Community

and School Partnership Project to improve access to sport

and recreation facilities through greater sharing of school

and community assets.

Working with organisations like Aktive will help the council

support Aucklanders to develop life-long leisure and sporting

habits that benefit their physical and mental health.

Auckland Council


He pānui nō Sport New Zealand

Sport New Zealand is working hard to improve

the quality of sport and recreation available to New

Zealanders, particularly our young people.

It’s our belief that quality is the key to young people

getting active and staying active in a world of

competing priorities and technologies.

Aktive – Auckland Sport & Recreation is a key partner

for Sport New Zealand, and one that shares our beliefs,

commitment and approach. This is critical, with one

third of our population living in Auckland.

This year Aktive has taken major strides forward

in its efforts to ensure quality opportunities are available

for the people of Auckland, and that these opportunities

reflect the dynamics and needs of Auckland’s

many and varied communities.

We believe The Auckland Approach to Community Sport

is a game-changer. Launched by the Aktive group this year,

this plan provides a uniform and integrated approach to the

delivery of sport and recreation across the city’s sporting

regions. It’s focussed on local solutions for local needs

and will, we believe, get more investment to the

grassroots and get more young Aucklanders active.

I congratulate Aktive’s board and management

on the steps they have taken this year to reposition

the organisation for a more positive future for

sport and recreation in our biggest city.

The 2016/17 year has seen significant steps by Aktive and its key

delivery partners over this period – Harbour Sport, Sport Auckland,

Counties Manukau Sport and Sport Waitakere – towards the

shared vision for Auckland to be the world’s most active city. It

can also be marked by three words – interesting, inspiring and


Raewyn Lovett

Chair – Aktive

A critical aspect of this vision has been completed and launched;

namely, The Auckland Approach to Community Sport. Co-created

with our Regional Sports Trust partners, Sport New Zealand,

Auckland Council and health and education providers, the strategy

represents a consistent and scalable community sport system.

The focus is to provide Auckland a world-class community sports

system. How? Put simply, community by community; a message

that has been shared with various stakeholders including national

and regional sports organisations.

From a performance perspective, it is pleasing to note Sport

New Zealand’s positive comments around the considerable

commitment and effort to develop and roll out The Auckland

Approach to Community Sport. This includes understanding

that the result is a shared vision with aligned regional and local

planning across Auckland for the very first time. Along with

reference to the important strategic role Aktive plays in New

Zealand’s sport system, Sport New Zealand’s annual review of

Aktive has given us confidence and encouragement to progress

Auckland-wide planning.

This is boosted by an increase of $1.5

million from up-stream funders, taking

investment in Auckland to a new high

of over $11 million*, and advancing all

parts of the system and partners.

Making a tangible benefit for

communities, we are committed to

complete transparency to where this

and all monies are spent, as shown

in the funding allocation summary

available on our website.

Aktive’s Shared Services and Procurement continues to go

from strength to strength, now having taken over $1 million

back office savings out of the sector. This is money that can

be and is reinvested back into the grass roots of sport and


The launch of a new service for the sector, the Chairs’

Roundtable series, focuses on improving governance

capability. There has also been strong progress with innovative

programmes such as Good Sports, HERA – Everyday

Goddess, TLC (Talent, Leadership & Character) and Coach

Evolve, along with the ongoing facilitation of Sport New Zealand

programmes Pathway to Podium and Performance Coach


This performance has been acknowledged in the stakeholder

survey of Aktive’s operations, noting greater access to

resources, improved performance and increased sector

support and collaboration as key highlights. We look forward to

building on this with further engagement with our stakeholders.

Partnerships are invaluable to the work of Aktive. We are

pleased to have signed three Regional Sports Trusts to deliver

The Auckland Approach to Community Sport – Harbour Sport,

Sport Auckland and Sport Waitakere, now joined by CLM

and College Sport who in 2017/18 will roll out the strategy for

the benefit of the communities and high schools of Counties

Manukau. We are working collaboratively with these partners to

support them to empower their respective local communities.

We also work closely with other partners on projects such as

the ‘Believe You Can’ Leadership Day with iSport Foundation

– we are proud that this event was recognised as joint winner

of the New Zealand Recreation Association Outstanding Event

Award 2016. Another significant partnership is the Greater

Auckland Aquatic Action Plan (GAAAP) managed by Aktive and

Water Safety New Zealand and funded by Sport New Zealand,

Foundation North and Water Safety New Zealand. Since its

inception in 2011, GAAAP has provided 840,000 free Swim

& Survive lessons to 87,632 young people, targeted towards

decile 1-6 schools.

Aktive is privileged to have a seat

on the advocacy groups OneVoice

and Healthy Auckland Together

(HAT). Our partnerships are further

underpinned by working groups

in the vital strategic focal areas of

Young People, Spaces & Places,

Targeted Populations, Sector

Development, and Coaching & Talent

Development, all backed by insights.

Aktive is supported by strong, stable governance. This was

further strengthened over this period with the Selection and

Performance Committee’s appointment of David Tse as a

new board member. The Board and Executive has also been

supported by Subcommittees and the Aktive Māori Advisory

Group, Coaching & Talent Development Advisory Group,

Regional KiwiSport Advisory Group, Tertiary Advisory Group,

Aquatics Advisory Group and project-specific steering groups

for Good Sports and HERA – Everyday Goddess. These groups

have helped to introduce a whole new series of connections

across community and sporting organisations in Auckland.

A crucial feature of Aktive is its

people – a group small in number,

but big on talent, expertise and

commitment. We would like to

acknowledge and thank them for

all their hard work. We would also

like to thank all our commercial

partners from the past year – Holden,

2Degrees, Fairfax Media, Simpson

Grierson, Sheffield and Ricoh; as well

as our sector partners – AUT, AUT

Millennium Institute of Sport, Massey

University, Unitec, Bruce Pulman Park

and the iSPORT Foundation. Like

us, these partners are committed to

improving participation levels

in Auckland.

Furthermore, we would like to express sincere thanks to the

up-stream stakeholders who show such confidence in Aktive

and our approach to Auckland. These include Sport New

Zealand, High Performance Sport New Zealand, Auckland

Council, Water Safety New Zealand, Foundation North, the

New Zealand Community Trust and the Lion Foundation. We

would also like to recognise our much-valued delivery agents

and sector partners – driving results in local communities is

dependent on their input. Finally, we would like to acknowledge

the Aktive Board for its strategic guidance – as always this is

much appreciated and respected.

10 Aktive Annual Report 2016/2017


Mana whakahaere

Aktive is governed by a seven-member Board, chaired by

Raewyn Lovett ONZM and supported by trustees Graham

Child, Eru Lyndon, Peter Meehan, Helen Robinson,

Jo Wiggins and David Tse who all bring a wealth of sport,

business and governance experience to the table.

An audit and risk subcommittee, chaired by Peter

Meehan, meets on a bimonthly basis and a health & safety

subcommittee, chaired by Jo Wiggins, and commercial

subcommittee, chaired by Helen Robinson, meet quarterly.

A step-change for Community Sport Strategy

in Auckland

There were two significant strategic developments approved

by the Aktive Board in 2016/17. The first, following a review,

was the decision to upweight Aktive’s capability in spaces and

places, targeted populations and insights, with the addition of

three new roles.

The Board then oversaw the development of a signature

new strategy to increase young Aucklanders’ participation

and physical activity levels. Called The Auckland Approach

to Community Sport, and co-designed with Regional Sports

Trusts and the sector, it is Auckland’s unique response to

addressing declining participation and physical activity levels.

In a first, it has created an interlinking series of regional

“blueprint” plans, informed by national and regional strategies

and priorities for Young People, Spaces & Places, Coaching

& Talent Development, Sector Development and Collaborative

Advocacy. These regional plans are in turn informed by local

Community of Activity plans, owned by Regional Sports Trusts

and other delivery partners, which are heavily influenced by the

input of the targeted communities themselves.

This targeting of communities, the focus on listening to their

needs and then building others’ capability to deliver sustainable

initiatives, represents a step-change in how Aktive and its

partners are increasing participation levels in Auckland.


Aktive’s Board takes seriously its obligation to identify

and manage potential risk to the organisation and the wider

sector. A risk register and a health and safety report form

part of every meeting agenda. Aktive has taken a lead role in

adopting and providing a health and safety policy that meets

the requirements of the health and safety legislation, and in

ensuring its delivery partners understand their obligations.


The Aktive Board believes in fostering relationships

and engagement through transparent communication

with stakeholders and delivery partners.

Regular meetings are held with the chairs of Regional Sports

Trusts and other providers, including reciprocal invitations to

attend Board meetings. At a broader level, major stakeholders

such as Sport New Zealand and Auckland Council regularly

attend Aktive board meetings. Supplementing these two

primary channels are one-on-one meetings with stakeholders

along with the distribution of key stakeholder reports, papers

and memoranda.

Advisory Groups

Aktive has a strategic priority to work collaboratively and

align with a broad range of central government and regional

stakeholders. Consistent with this, a number of advisory

groups have been formed, with experts volunteering to serve

as follows:

Aktive Māori Advisory Group

The past year has seen Aktive’s Māori Advisory Group (AMAG)

go through a review of its Terms of Reference. New members

joined with the appointments of Ayla Hoeta and Mace Ward to

the group. As a Youth Innovator in the south Auckland area,

Ayla brings a youthful perspective to AMAG, while Mace Ward,

as General Manager of Auckland Council’s Parks Sport and

Recreation division accepted an invitation to join as an

ex-officio member.

The past year has included overseeing the development of a

plan to prepare Aktive for strategic planning in early 2018. A

key platform for the plan is to grow the understanding of the

important bi-cultural foundations of Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland

in an increasingly multi-ethnic population. Three focus areas

of the plan are to continue to support He Oranga Poutama

delivering to its outcomes through the transition from Sport

Waitakere to Aktive; strengthen workforce cultural competency

of Aktive Group; and strengthen engagement and relationships

with Māori entities to enable stronger strategic planning


AMAG provided advice to the Sport Facilities Prioritisation

project and appointed a member to the Auckland Investors’

Forum. This year also saw the fruition of its contribution

to World Masters Games planning come to light in the

contributions during key procedures, events and ceremonies

of the games on the world stage.

To enable more Aucklanders to be more active, we need to

achieve greater value for every dollar invested as well as

attract greater investment into a sector that’s important to

both the regional economy and New Zealand’s sport and

recreation sector.

Coordination and leadership from Aktive has not only brought

more investment, but also more collaboration across the sector,

with successful local projects rolled out into other parts of

Auckland and successful region-wide initiatives launched to

address issues and opportunities facing the entire region.

Allocation of Investment Funds

Aktive invested more than $10 million on behalf of its key

strategic funders last year for community sport delivery,

strategic leadership and regional service that reflects a number

of interlinking strategies. These include the sector’s Auckland

Sport & Recreation Strategic Action Plan, Sport New Zealand’s

Community Sport strategy, Water Safety New Zealand’s Water

Safety Sector Strategy and Aktive’s strategic plan. Aktive’s

investment process ensures that delivery agents’ KPIs line up

side by side to expand results on the ground.

communities and the sport and recreation sector

by Aktive and our delivery partners in the 2016/17 year.

Auckland Rugby Union. In 2018, we would like to extend this

partnership to include Secondary School Rugby in the Counties

At the core of College Sport Auckland is the intention

‘to provide consistent quality sport competitions, events

and leadership for the greater Auckland Secondary Schools.

To embrace existing and new relationships to ensure the

One of the biggest challenges for schools is dealing with both

the time and cost of transporting students across the wider

competitions in the lower grades, while also developing wider

Auckland competitions in the elite grades.

A review of bylaws and sanctioned sports was carried out

in the second part of 2016. As a guide, we now require a

minimum of 20 schools or 200 competitors to be involved in

the sporting activity for it to be sanctioned. We will continue

to consult with schools and Regional Sport Organisations

on an annual basis to decided if we sanction new sports

or remove others. As a prelude to our bylaws, we have

introduced an Integrity Statement that outlines the values

we see as vital to sport in schools; honesty, respect and

fair play. As part of our Strategic Plan, the board will now

review bylaws on a three-year cycle and make changes

based on robust evidence and data. We will continue to

survey our members on any proposed bylaw changes.

It has been great to work with Aktive, Auckland Council,

Sport New Zealand and the Auckland Regional Sports

Trusts on the Young People’s Plan for Auckland. Only

through collaboration and partnership can we provide

quality sporting opportunities and experiences for all our

Auckland young people.

Counties Manukau

The 2016/2017 year marked continual developments in

the Counties Manukau area, with a firm focus to increase

engagement in sport and recreation in people’s lives and local


Sport New Zealand research shows a 7.7% drop in national

adult participation between 1998 and 2014. This decline was

noticeably profound among Māori (down 8.8%) and Pasifika

(down 11.4%), communities which are particularly concentrated

in South Auckland. As such, the need for empowerment of

the region and the people who live there to uptake sport and

recreation is critical to work towards reversing these statistics.

Aktive’s responsibility is to work with delivery partners to

support them in building capability and developing key

participation initiatives in local communities, including Counties

Manukau. Given our responsibility for the investment of public

funds through delivery partners, results are imperative.

In the last three financial years, Aktive has significantly

increased direct local investment resulting in an increase per

capita investment in to the Counties Manukau area. Increases

in investment have resulted in traction, encouraging results and

success stories emerging from the region, including:

• Eight out of 16 community providers that received Targeted

Populations Group funding from Aktive ran initiatives in

the Counties Manukau area, benefiting a number of local


• 32 local sport and recreation organisations received funding

through the local KiwiSport fund, totaling $998,336. Projects

funded from previous years and 2016/2017 KiwiSport

funding have supporting the following in Counties Manukau:

- A total of 7,775 hours of delivery to a total of 336,693

children aged 5-18 years

- Of these children, 50% were male and 50% were female

- 3% of delivery has been in secondary schools, with 97%

in primary schools.

• 2616 participants received 17,349 swimming lessons

under GAAAP

• 50 students involved in the Aktive-led Talent, Leadership,

Character (TLC) programme, including players from

Southern Cross Campus’ 1st XV Girls Rugby Team which

went on to win the Auckland competition for the fourth year


• Delivery of 653 sessions of non-curriculum primary school

sport in 28 schools in the region by Counties Manukau Sport

• 15 Pathway to Podium athletes come from the Counties

Manukau region

• Through Counties Manukau Sport, 26 coaches club

modules were delivered to 345 coaches, including 137

new coaches

• Several Counties Manukau organisations engaged as part

of HERA – Everyday Goddess, including Papatoetoe High

School, Otahuhu College and Papatoetoe Cricket, as well

as a 12-week HERA – Everyday Goddess programme run at

the Otahuhu Recreation Centre.

With the roll out of The Auckland Approach to Community

Sport strategy, we look forward to continuing to support the

Counties Manukau area through our delivery partners. The

new approach to sport and recreation brings to the forefront

listening to local communities and working with them on local

solutions to get more of their people active.

Harbour Sport

With a vision of ‘a community physically active for life’, Harbour

Sport is committed to supporting community development for

sport and healthy lifestyles. With a strategic focus on young

people, targeted populations, Maori, Pasifika and East Asians,

Harbour Sport has been able to see some real changes in

people’s lives and local communities as they become more

active and engaged in sport and recreation.

Harbour Sport was the winner of the New Zealand Secondary

Schools Sports Council Innovation in School Award in 2017

and the New Zealand Recreation Association Outstanding

Community Recreation Programme in 2016 for SportSPasifik.

SportSPasifik provides a multi faceted approach to servicing the

Pasifika community. Through PolySports holiday programme,

349 Pasifika children participated in fun games and activities

and healthy eating nutritional messages. Through the Equip’d

programme, a further 95 Pasifika teenage girls have participated

in sports skills, fitness, mentoring and nutrition. NiuMovement

provided for 10 families and 45 participants with whole family

sessions including physical activity, exercise sessions and

nutritional education.

The ActivAsian volunteer programme encourages young

people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to

participate in sport through volunteering. This saw 180 people

register and volunteer at 27 events. Weekly walks around the

North Shore promote regular physical activity and introduce

new migrants to parks, reserves and facilities, with an average

of 30 participants per walk. Spike Spin Smash provides another

opportunity through a weekly drop in social sport session

targeted at secondary school students and young adults,

averaging 40 participants per week.

Ensuring primary school teachers have capability in providing

high quality physical education and physical literacy sessions

with fun, quality experiences will set young people up for a

lifelong love of physical activity. Harbour Sport delivered to

576 teachers and 62 student teachers.

Through the Coach Sport Initiative (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. CSI has delivered to 12 secondary schools

and 15 primary schools, with five coaching leaders working

in the community. There were 378 coaches developed with

7,447 athletes impacted.

Supporting sport and recreation organisations at a number

of levels to deliver and maintain a quality sport system in our

region is engendered by good governance, good practice

and continuous improvement. Harbour Sport has worked

with nine Regional Sport Organisations and a number

of their clubs, focusing on strategic planning, volunteer

management, organisational structure development and club

capability. Identification and sharing of good practice ensures

organisations take a holistic approach to foster and develop

quality, sustainable programmes, strong partnerships and

effective collaborations, benefitting the whole community.

Sport Auckland

This year was the second year of implementation of

our 2015-2018 Strategic Plan. Against the backdrop of

‘Inspiring our communities to live healthy active lifestyles’

we channelled our resources toward our communities

with high needs. With a strong alignment to Sport New

Zealand’s Community Sport Plan and the Aktive-led

Auckland Approach to Community Sport, our work this

year had an emphasis on developing strong links between

schools and community organisations as we look to create

accessible and regular opportunities for young people.

Within these communities we have continued to deliver

products and services with a focus particularly on targeted

populations with low participation rates in physical activity

and sport; in building community sport capability across our

region; and delivering health and wellness programmes on

behalf of the Auckland District Health Board and Counties

Manakau District Health Board.

We have had many successes along the way, including the

opening of the Grey Lynn Pump Track project and the Skate

Board project in Grey Lynn.

Both of these community-led projects highlight the role

Regional Sports Trusts play as change agents in our

communities. Collaboration, alignment and partnering are

key ingredients to our successes. With that in mind we were

encouraged to receive the results of the Sport New Zealand

stakeholder survey where 74% of our stakeholders felt we

collaborate well and 76% felt that our overall performance

as a partner was either good, very good or excellent.

Our work directly, or indirectly, impacted on 20,000 primary

school students and 29 secondary schools. We delivered

Professional Development sessions to early childhood teachers

and tertiary students, and over 10 club capability workshops

were held for our stakeholders. In-depth capability build

work was also conducted with 20 sporting organisations.

Programmes such as TLC, Coach Evolve, HERA – Everyday

Goddess, Good Sports, GAAAP and Growing Leaders were

delivered to our communities; and Local Board submissions

were made to our seven Local Boards’ Long Term Plans. We

successfully led a joint tender with Auckland Council to the

Auckland District Health Board for the Green Prescription and

Active Families contracts. Over 11,300 Green Prescription

referrals were serviced.

We remain committed to our partnership with Aktive and look

forward to continuing to deliver The Auckland Approach to

Community Sport. Through this we can foster more

locally-led and locally tailored community programmes aimed

at increasing participation in physical activity and sport in our

local communities.

Sport Waitakere

2016/2017 has seen great developments in the West

Auckland region, from the redesign of our wider leadership

programmes, exponential growth in KiwiSport delivery through

to the successful delivery of multiple workshops for a variety of

community groups.

In the leadership space, Sport Waitakere redeveloped the

existing Growing Leaders Programme to have a greater West

Auckland focused approach. Now called ‘Nga Kaea Mo Apopo’

(Leaders of Tomorrow), the focus is on the core tenets of

the ancestral leaders of West Auckland who are depicted on

the Pou at Arataki visitor centre. Although the content of the

existing Growing Leaders Programme hasn’t changed, the

context within which it is delivered has evolved to be locally

and culturally meaningful.

KiwiSport has seen over 11,000 ‘Young Westies’ receiving

quality sport and physical activity opportunities, which has

leveraged in excess of $400,000 on top of the initial KiwiSport

investment. Add to this a myriad of workshops and professional

development opportunities, run in the community by the

Healthy Families Waitakere team and Sport Waitakere, every

corner of our region has been touched.

Healthy Families Waitakere has shifted gear and ramped up

activation of leadership in our community over this last year. We

are extremely privileged to work alongside amazing community

leaders, organisations and stakeholders to lead sustainable

change across a variety of settings including early childhood,

schools and kura, workplaces, sport clubs, pacific churches,

marae and community settings. These collective approaches

have led to many organisations prioritising healthy food and

drink policies and guidelines, many schools promoting and

supporting water as the best choice through improved policies

and practices as well as drinking fountain infrastructure, and

sports clubs exploring ways to provide greater community

outcomes such as starting playgroups or family activity

programmes in their facilities.

Furthermore, Sport Waitakere has been key to the fast tracking

of some long sought after facility development including

Glenora Rugby League Club obtaining a long term lease ratified

by Auckland Council and supporting the next stages of the

redevelopment of the Waitemata Table Tennis facility at Parrs

Park. Both of these projects have sat with the clubs without

significant progress for over three years. With direct intervention

and guidance from Sport Waitakere, both have now progressed


Moving forward, the Communities of Activity aspect of The

Auckland Approach to Community Sport will start to truly focus

some of the work we do, and most importantly really drive

positive local change in some of our areas which need it

the most.

Sport Waitakere looks forward to working with our community

in the year ahead, and to continue striving for our vision of

‘everyone connected, healthy and active.’

Greater Auckland Aquatic Action Plan

The Greater Auckland Aquatic Action Plan (GAAAP) is a

collaborative project that coordinates professionally delivered

swimming lessons to primary school children in the greater

Auckland region, ensuring the development of fundamental

swimming and water safety skills. GAAAP targets schools in

decile 1-6 and children in years 3-6.

2016/17 has seen Water Safety New Zealand roll out a new

approach to teaching young New Zealanders water safety:

Water Skills for Life. Water Skills For Life has a greater

emphasis on teaching water safety skills prior to stroke and

distance focused swimming skills, as well as exposure to a

range of aquatic environments. Aktive has been working

with Water Safety New Zealand, Swimming New Zealand

and providers to roll out Water Skills For Life across all

GAAAP Schools.

Aktive is appreciative of the significant funding and

administrative support given to GAAAP by Foundation North,

Sport New Zealand’s KiwiSport, Water Safety New Zealand,

Counties Manukau Sport, Harbour Sport, Sport Auckland

and Sport Waitakere.

2016/17 highlights include:

• 137,056 individual lessons delivered

• 21,393 students received GAAAP swimming lessons

• 348 teachers received training and poolside support

to deliver water safety education

• 220 teachers upskilled in Water Skills For Life

• $580,000 renewed investment from Foundation North

and Water Safety New Zealand.

“Many of our students would not

be able to get this valuable learning

opportunity if it was not for the funding

and lessons at our school. Almost all

our students have gained confidence

in water and have learnt to keep afloat.

The organisation of the lessons and the

friendly instructors kept our students

motivated and they are all keen and

looking forward to future lessons. During

our end of year trip to Parakai Pools we

are seeing more students confidently

going into the water.”

Kamrul Jalil, Massey Primary School

“Our aspiration at Water Safety New

Zealand is that every New Zealand child

has the opportunity to develop water

safety knowledge and survival skills.

Aktive plays a huge part in enabling

this and is a valued Auckland partner in

managing a coordinated approach to

deliver the Greater Auckland Aquatic

Action Plan (GAAAP). This gives us a

wide reaching platform to deliver our

Water Skills or Life initiative to 5-13 year

old kids within the Auckland region.

It’s a great partnership and we look

forward to continuing our close

relationship this year for the benefit of

Kiwi kids and the wider community.”

Hera – Everyday Goddess is a pilot project with a holistic

approach, aimed at empowering girls aged 10-18 years

(previously 13-18 years) to become active for life in formal

and informal sport and recreation. The project has a

participant-led focus with the needs and wants of the

participant at the centre of all activities.

To empower girls, first there must be a shift in the approach

that sport and recreation providers take to engaging girls.

2017/16 saw the beginning of the curation of case studies

and resources that will be made available to the sector as a

tool kit to support the needed shift in thinking.

The past year has seen HERA – Everyday Goddess

support and connect organisations that are willing to listen

and work with girls, including: Sisters of Shred, Massey

Park Pools, Papatoetoe High School, Otahuhu College,

SOUL, Green Bay College, College Sport Auckland,

Counties Manukau Sport Coordinators, Police Fitness

squads, iSPORT Foundation, Social Workers in secondary

schools, Papatoetoe Cricket, Otahuhu Pool & Leisure

Centre, Onboard Skate, Equip’d - Birkenhead College,

Manurewa Football Club, New Zealand Rugby and the

three provincial unions’ woman development officers.

Aktive acknowledges the funding given by Sport New

Zealand, NZCT and Auckland Council for this pilot project.

2016/17 highlights include:

• Supporting New Zealand’s first Hobbyhorse event held

on Waiheke Island, driven by an 11 year old girl and fully

Good Sports is a pilot culture change project that seeks

to educate key influencers in children’s sport - parents,

coaches, teachers and sport administrators, on how to

create positive sporting experiences, encourage life-long

participation and ultimately a love of sport in children.

Good Sports aims to achieve culture change in three ways:

1 Train and support Good Sports Developers as change

agents to deliver reflective Good Sports Community

Workshops to adult influencers of children’s sport

2 Develop sector and public resources that align to Good

Sports philosophy

3 Public messaging campaigns.

2016/17 highlights include:

Aktive continued its focus of regional leadership

development through initiatives aimed at chairs of National

and Regional Sport Organisations’ boards in Auckland. Two

Chairs Roundtable sessions run in association with strategic

partners Simpson Grierson and Sheffield, and with the

support of Sport New Zealand, featured leading chairs and

directors with sports experience. These were supported by

bespoke Leadership in Sport courses, written by Sheffield,

attended by 15 sports leaders. Legal issues for National

Sport Organisations and Regional Sport Organisations were

highlighted in a free legal clinic and seminar hosted and run

by Simpson Grierson.

The Auckland Approach to Community Sport Sector

Development Regional Delivery Plan was created by a

working group, involving Sport New Zealand, Auckland

Council, National Sports Organisation and Regional Sport

Organisation representatives, and Regional Sports Trust

Partners. Implementation is now being directed by the

Sector Development Action Group.

The Aktive Sector Development team went from one

to three positions, including one role part-funded by

New Zealand Rugby, focused on club capability and

facility development as part of its Wider Auckland Strategy,

sitting in Aktive. That role is driving a capability improvement

stream for rugby across Auckland.

The Volunteer Action Plan project report was received in

late 2016, and challenges us to devote specific resource

to volunteering in sport, a project which will be continued

in 2017/18.

Regional Sports Trusts Partners continued to offer capability

development at sub-regional level with direct one-on-one

assistance and collective sessions on strategic planning,

finance, sponsorship and volunteer management for

Regional Sport Organisations and clubs.

Back office alignment (shared services)

The coordination of the shared services approach to

administration across Aktive and the Regional Sports Trusts

bore even more fruit, as expected, after the initial savings.

The group has seen a reduction by almost a third in the ratio

of the administration costs as a proportion of income since

shared services was set up.

A focus of efficiency and value for money sees the overall cost

of Aktive’s administration run at just 6% of total income.

Notably though, the value of the approach has been

recognised by Regional and National Sport Organisations

outside Aktive’s immediate sphere with 15 organisations

now having utilised 51 different services within Aktive Shared

Services and Procurement’s offering, enabling over $1 million

to date of realisable savings to their operational costs – money

able to be reinvested into sport at the grassroots.

That success has been achieved through reduced duplication,

improved economies of scale and increased buying power.

Discussions are underway with a further 19 entities (including

Regional and National Sport Organisations) to take advantage

of Aktive Shared Service and Procurement in the 2017/18

financial year.

Coaching & Talent Development

The Aktive Coaching & Talent Development team, in

conjunction with its Regional Sports Trusts delivery partners,

has continued to build 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 key 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.

Over the past year we can report that through the six

programmes embedded within The Auckland Approach to

Community Sport, 460 development opportunities were

provided for 3,800 coaches, and directly and indirectly more

than 34,000 sport participants experienced a more positive

sporting environment as a result. It was also pleasing to note

that, in its annual review, Sport New Zealand has rated the

coaching system within Auckland as world class for a third

consecutive year.

delivered by Aktive and its Regional Sports Trusts delivery

partners. The programme targets coaches working in

the development community, with the aim of producing

positive change in their coaching practices to enable quality

experiences for participants.

Through a consultation process with Regional Sports

Organisations, 52 development coaches from 22 sports were

identified as candidates for Coach Evolve. Over the past year,

this group has benefited from four workshops and follow

up forums where key coaching concepts were outlined and


about the power of teamwork and the importance of moral and

performance character.

The third year of TLC has seen the addition of Glendowie

College, taking the number of schools involved to nine, with

a further 12 schools expressing an interest to join. Principals

and senior leaders are recognising the opportunity that

exists in genuine leadership and character development,

and understanding that for many students sport is the ideal

learning environment to teach these key qualities.

Highlights include:

• The TLC lead at Rutherford College being appointed as

the Play.Sport Activator for the school

• Onehunga High School has started to plan for a year 9/10

TLC Class that will teach leadership and character; the class

is to be linked to the curriculum and will start in 2018

potential future winners on the world stage. The goal of P2P is

to accelerate the learning of these athletes to ensure they are

better prepared for the demands of high performance sport.

Auckland is the largest P2P hub in the country.

Highlights include:

• 96 athletes accessed 138 individual consults, 20 workshops

and over 1,153 hours of strength and conditioning support

• Since inception, 50 athletes have transitioned from the

Auckland P2P programme into the High Performance Sport

New Zealand’s carded athlete system

• Partner Recognition Event to acknowledge the significant

value partner support plays in the programme

• In the Sport New Zealand end of year survey over 90% of

athletes rated the value of the Auckland programme as high

or extremely high.

Aktive led the sector’s engagement in the Auckland Sports

Sector: Facilities Priorities Plan. The project involved eight

workshops with the sector across the year in conjuction with

Local Board and major facility sessions. The final report and

the methodology for prioritising major investment in individual

codes will help advise funding decisions by Auckland Council

and other funding sources moving forward.

Aktive with Auckland Council, Sport New Zealand and the

Ministry of Education, is part of the Community and Sport

Partnerships project to establish protocols and good practice

around unlocking school facilities for community use.

The project also looks to improve joint planning and

investments for shared use.

Late in the year work commenced on a second hugely

important piece for Auckland, an Indoor Courts Facility Plan.

Aktive again leads engagement with the major codes utilising

indoor court space where a shortfall in capacity is hindering

growth in participation.

Aktive has facilitated, chaired or participated in Auckland

community sport or facility planning and implementation,

for Netball, Rugby, League, Golf, Basketball, Hockey and

Tennis. In each, a planned approach to facility development

to meet shortfall in capacity is underway. Aktive played a lead

role in bringing to fruition an additional Facilities Fund for Rugby

League, based on Auckland’s hosting of the NRL Nines, and

bringing $1 million of untagged funding from the NRL

for facilities in Auckland.

Over the year The Auckland Approach to Community Sport

44 Aktive Annual Report 2016/2017


For the year ended 30 June 2017


Aktive - Auckland Sport & Recreation (“Aktive”) is a Charitable Trust (legal name of Trust ‘Auckland Sport’), domiciled

in New Zealand and registered under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957. The significant accounting policies used in the

preparation of these financial statements are set out below. These financial statements have been prepared on the basis

of historical cost, as modified by the fair value measurement of non-derivative financial instruments. These financial

statements have been prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Practice in New Zealand (“NZ

GAAP”). They comply with Public Benefit Entity International Public Sector Accounting Standards (“PBE IPSAS”) and other

applicable financial reporting standards as appropriate that have been authorised for use by the External Reporting Board

for Not-For-Profit entities. For the purposes of complying with NZ GAAP, Aktive is a public benefit not-for-profit entity and

is eligible to apply Tier 2 Not-For-Profit PBE IPSAS on the basis that it does not have public accountability and it is not

defined as large. The Board of Trustees has elected to report in accordance with Tier 2 Not-For-Profit PBE Accounting

Standards and in doing so has taken advantage of all applicable Reduced Disclosure Regime (“RDR”) disclosure



Revenue is recognised to the extent that it is probable that the economic benefit will flow to Aktive and revenue can be

reliably measured. Revenue is measured at the fair value of the consideration received. The following specific recognition

criteria must be met before revenue is recognised.

Revenue from non-exchange transactions

Grant revenue

Grant revenue includes grants given by the Government, other charitable organisations, philanthropic organisations and

businesses. Grant revenue is recognised when the conditions attached to the grant have been complied with. Where there

are unfulfilled conditions attached to the grant, the amount relating to the unfulfilled conditions is recognised as a liability

and released to revenue as the conditions are fulfilled.


Sport New Zealand has introduced the KiwiSport Regional Partnership Fund to increase sporting participation and

opportunities for children and allow them to develop better skills. Aktive is the conduit of the KiwiSport funding with 80%

of total funding distributed to local areas within Auckland and the remaining 20% allocated to ‘regional’ use. The local

portion of this fund is ultimately received by Primary Schools, Secondary Schools and Community Organisations to deliver

programmes to school aged children.

Kiwisport funding is received by Aktive in a ‘non-agent’ capacity as Aktive has control over the use of funds in terms of

the vehicle in which funds are distributed to the related regions for which it serves. Aktive also directly benefits from the

funding in the pursuit of its objectives via brand recognition and advertising. The funds are accounted for in the statement

of comprehensive revenue and expense and result in an increase in net assets.

Revenue from exchange transactions

Sponsorship in kind

Sponsorship in kind is recognised as revenue and expenses when goods or services are received. Sponsorship in kind is

measured at fair value as at the date of acquisition, ascertained by reference to the expected cost that would be otherwise


Interest income

Interest revenue is recognised as it accrues, using the effective interest method.

Rendering of services

Service revenue is recognised as revenue when the service has been provided.

Aktive Annual Report 2016/2017 45


Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognised when Aktive becomes a party to the contractual provisions of

the financial instrument.

Aktive derecognises a financial asset or, where applicable, a part of a financial asset or part of a group of similar

financial assets when the rights to receive cash flows from the asset have expired or are waived, or Aktive has

transferred its rights to receive cash flows from the asset or has assumed an obligation to pay the received cash

flows in full without material delay to a third party; and either:

- Aktive has transferred substantially all the risks and rewards of the asset; or

- Aktive has neither transferred nor retained substantially all the risks and rewards of the asset, but has transferred

control of the asset.

Financial assets

Financial assets within the scope of NFP PBE IPSAS 29 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement

are classified as financial assets at fair value through surplus or deficit, loans and receivables, held-to-maturity

investments or available-for-sale financial assets. The classifications of the financial assets are determined at initial


The categorisation determines subsequent measurement and whether any resulting income and expense is

recognised in surplus or deficit or in other comprehensive revenue and expense. Aktive’s financial assets are

classified as loans and receivables. Aktive’s financial assets include: cash and cash equivalents, short-term

investments, receivables from non-exchange transactions and receivables from exchange transactions.

All financial assets are subject to review for impairment at least at each reporting date. Financial assets are impaired

when there is any objective evidence that a financial asset or group of financial assets is impaired. Different criteria to

determine impairment are applied for each category of financial assets. Where impairment is identified, the carrying

amount of the asset is reduced and the loss is recognised in the surplus or deficit for the reporting period.

Loans and receivables

Loans and receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted

in an active market. After initial recognition, these are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest

method, less any allowance for impairment. Aktive’s cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments, receivables

from non-exchange transactions and receivables from exchange transactions fall into this category of financial


Financial liabilities

Aktive’s financial liabilities include trade and other payables (excluding GST and PAYE), employee benefits, loans and

borrowings and income in advance (in respect to grants whose conditions are yet to be complied with).

All financial liabilities are initially recognised at fair value (plus transaction cost for financial liabilities not at fair value

through surplus or deficit) and are measured subsequently at amortised cost using the effective interest method

except for financial liabilities at fair value through surplus or deficit.

46 Aktive Annual Report 2016/2017


Cash and cash equivalents are short term, highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to known amounts of

cash and which are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value.


Short term investments comprise term deposits which have a term of greater than three months and therefore do

not fall into the category of cash and cash equivalents.


Items of property, plant and equipment are measured at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment losses.

Cost includes expenditure that is directly attributable to the acquisition of the asset. Where an asset is acquired

through a non-exchange transaction, its cost is measured at its fair value as at the date of acquisition.

Depreciation is charged on a straight line basis over the useful life of the asset. Depreciation is charged at rates

calculated to allocate the cost or valuation of the asset less any estimated residual value over its remaining useful life:

- Motor vehicles 20%

- Office equipment 10-40%

- Computer equipment 10-40%

Depreciation methods, useful lives and residual values are reviewed at each reporting date and are adjusted

if there is a change in the expected pattern of consumption of the future economic benefits or service potential

embodied in the asset.


Aktive has been granted exemption from income tax as it is a registered charity with the Department of

Internal Affairs.


Revenues, expenses and assets are recognised net of the amount of GST except for receivables and payables,

which are stated with the amount of GST included. The net amount of GST recoverable from, or payable to,

the Inland Revenue Department is included as part of receivables or payables in the statement of financial position.


Payments on operating lease agreements, where the lessor retains substantially the risk and rewards of ownership

of an asset, are recognised as an expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

Payments on finance lease agreements, where the lessee retains substantially the risk and rewards of ownership

of an asset, are capitalised. The asset and the corresponding liability are recorded at inception at the fair value of

the leased asset.

Interest charges under finance leases 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 similar assets.


All borrowing costs are expensed in the period they occur. Borrowing costs consist of interest and other costs

that an entity incurs in connection with the borrowing of funds. Aktive has chosen not to capitalise borrowing

costs directly attributable to the acquisition, construction or production of assets.


Wages, salaries, annual leave and sick leave

Liabilities for wages and salaries, annual leave and accumulating sick leave are recognised in surplus or deficit during

the period in which the employee provided the related services. Liabilities for the associated benefits are measured

at the amounts expected to be paid when the liabilities are settled.

Aktive Annual Report 2016/2017 47


Equity is the community’s interest in Aktive, measured as the difference between total assets and total liabilities.

Equity is made up of the following components:

Accumulated comprehensive revenue and expense

Accumulated comprehensive revenue and expense is Aktive’s accumulated surplus or deficit since its formation,

adjusted for transfers to/from specific reserves.

Reserve fund for continued operations

The continued successful operation of Aktive is dependent upon ongoing funding from a variety of sources.

As responsible managers of the funds entrusted to it, Aktive seeks to maintain a minimum level of funds to enable

Aktive to continue its operations should there be a short term interruption to usual funding levels. This reserve has

been established for this purpose.


The preparation of Aktive’s financial statements requires management to make judgements, estimates and

assumptions that affect the reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities, and the accompanying

disclosures, and the disclosure of contingent liabilities. Uncertainty about these assumptions and estimates could

result in outcomes that require a material adjustment to the carrying amount of assets or liabilities affected in future



In the process of applying Aktive’s accounting policies, management has made the following judgements,

which have the most significant effect on the amounts recognised in the financial statements:

Operating lease commitments

Aktive has entered into one or more operating leases.

Aktive has determined, based on an evaluation of the terms and conditions of the arrangements, such as

the lease term not constituting a substantial portion of the economic life of the property, that it does not retain all

the significant risks and rewards of ownership of these properties and accounts for the contracts as

operating leases.

Estimates and assumptions

The key assumptions concerning the future and other key sources of estimation uncertainty at the reporting date,

that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within

the next financial year, are described below. Aktive based its assumptions and estimates on parameters available

when the financial statements were prepared. Existing circumstances and assumptions about future developments,

however, may change due to market changes or circumstances arising beyond the control of Aktive. Such changes

are reflected in the assumptions when they occur.

Useful lives and residual values

The useful lives and residual values of assets are assessed using the following indicators to determine potential

future use and value from disposal:

- The condition of the asset

- The nature of the asset, its susceptibility and adaptability to changes in technology and processes

- The nature of the processes in which the asset is deployed

- Availability of funding to replace the asset

- Changes in the market in relation to the asset

The estimated useful lives of the asset classes held by Aktive are listed in ‘Property, plant and equipment’ above.
