ABOUT US

Sport Auckland is a Regional Sports Trust that was established in 1992. We are a Registered Charity, CC23631. Our vision is to

“Inspire our Communities to Live Healthy and Active Lifestyles.”

As a change agent, connector and system builder we play a large advocacy and influencing role on behalf of our local

communities. We focus on providing quality sport and active recreation experiences for our communities; and ensuring our

communities have the knowledge and support to live healthy, active lifestyles. We foster locally-led community programmes.

Wellness is at the core of what we do in the community.

To achieve our outcomes we partner and collaborate with key stakeholders and funders who align with our values and vision.

In our community sport focus we have formed a partnership with Aktive Auckland Sport and Recreation, Harbour Sport,

Sport Waitakere and CLM Community Sport to help deliver on Sport New Zealand’s Community Sport Strategy. The above

partnership co-designed The Auckland Approach to Community Sport. Under The Auckland Approach, Sport Auckland works

with local communities that, through our insights, have been identified with high needs.

Around three quarters of our community sport work is delivered in the Tamaki, Maungakiekie, Roskill, Howick, Pakuranga and

Inner City communities. The remaining community sport work takes place in our wider communities. You will find us:

• building a system that increases quality sport and active recreational opportunities for our young people and targeted

populations;

• building the capability of sports clubs and other organisations that require our help to deliver quality experiences to their

membership;

• working on opening up more spaces and places for sport and active recreation to take place;

• upskilling and increasing participation in coaching and volunteer work.

“We can see benefits for not just our club but most importantly, our community. We definitely look forward to working

with Sport Auckland and seeing how we can progress together in the future”.

Management, Local Sporting Body (2018 Stakeholder Survey)

Our Health and Wellness programmes are currently delivered in Glen Innes, Mt Albert, Mt Roskill, Otahuhu, Onehunga,

Avondale, Inner City, Waiheke Island, Great Barrier Islands, Highland Park, Otara, Mangere, Manurewa, Papatoetoe, Papakura,

Franklin and Waiuku communities. We deliver these on behalf of the ADHB and CMDHB.

“It has been a good year attending GRx - gave me a different perspective on my life, dealing with chronic pain daily,

controlling my asthma and trying to get my weight down. Thank you!”

MESSAGE

from our Chair and CEO

It is with great pleasure that we present our 26th Annual Report to our stakeholders. At the beginning of the year, based on

community needs and operational strategies, we laid out our roadmap of work that we were going to undertake (Our Focus

2018). This roadmap guided critical thinking in the Boardroom and amongst partners and funders alike.

Year end reflection on how far we have travelled reveals an achievement of 76% of Our Focus 2018 (13/17). While that result

was very pleasing we acknowledge there is room for continuous improvement, which we will embrace.

Throughout the year our discussions and thinking affirmed that the sport, active recreation and health and wellness sectors

are in the midst of very interesting and challenging times. Our vision of “Inspiring our Communities to Live Healthy Active

Lifestyles” could not be more apt at a time when physical inactivity, obesity and mental health issues are on the rise and the

Auckland metropolitan region is squeezed for spaces and places to participate in physical activity. We have a growing diverse

population that is consuming sport and physical activity in completely different formats to traditional offers. We have a new

coalition Government focussed on measuring the well-being of our people. Health and wellness, with little or no reference to

sport, is now front of mind for our nation. The common language, internationally, is to speak of the importance of physical

activity.

Richard Bailey, writing in the Huffington Post (2016), stated:

“Physical inactivity is a major public health issue, and there is an urgency to find sustainable and affordable ways of

getting the world moving. Large numbers of people are inactive to the extent that they risk their health, and while it is

often assumed that this is a problem of the West, it has now spread into every corner of the globe. Some describe the

current situation an inactivity pandemic.”

Anecdotally some commentators will tell us we have not made enough significant inroads into that pandemic. For Sport

Auckland to remain relevant and true to our vision our Board have highlighted that physical activity, more than ever before,

can be one of the positive vehicles that can help drive social, educational and health outcomes for our communities and for

our Government in an effort to reverse the inactivity pandemic.

That is why as part of our strategic thinking we have aligned our work to that of our partners’ (Aktive, Sport Waitakere,

Harbour Sport, CLM Community Sport, Auckland Council, Local Boards, Auckland District Health Board, Counties Manukau

District Health Board, Foundation North, Lion Foundation and NZCT) with an emphasis on shifting the needle forward to

increase physical activity levels within our communities. Our Board has determined that, with limited resources, partnering

and collaborating is the operating model of the day. We take this opportunity then to sincerely thank all the above named

organisations for their support and for the investment they have given us to help achieve our intentions for our communities.

To be impactful, our work has had to be more targeted than ever before. We are focussed on ensuring our Young People, per

se, are given quality experiences and opportunities that will ensure that they have a life-long love of physical activity. This

has meant understanding the Physical Literacy framework which relates to the holistic development of each individual at the

various stages of their lives. The holistic view takes into consideration an individual’s physical, social, emotional, cognitive

and spiritual needs. It means that providers of sport and physical activity need to be aware that they themselves need to have

a clear understanding of the Physical Literacy framework and rethink how they deliver their offerings in the market.

The 2017 Sport NZ sponsored Active NZ Survey

highlighted participation in physical activity has been

on the decline for a number of years and that identified

barriers to participation still exist. A summary of findings

show that young people are more likely to participate

in physical activity for fun; and adults for physical

wellbeing. Self-motivation and lack of energy are real

barriers to participation for those aged 18-49 year olds.

Irrespective of what levels of participation already take

place, 64% of young people and 74% of adults want to

increase their participation in physical activity. These are

national results.

The Minister of Sport, Grant Robertson, outlined his

current priorities for the sport and recreation sector with

the following focus:

• Growing participation for girls and women, including

their ability to pursue professional sporting careers;

• Improving the overall rates and quality of

participation in sport and recreation by low

participating populations;

• Strengthening the long-term opportunities for New

Zealanders with disabilities;

• Addressing the drop off in young people’s

participation in sport and physical activity once

they leave school.

His priorities segue neatly with what we have been

funded to do. In particular, to increase participation in

physical activity within our female population (10-18

year olds); our Asian, Maori and Samoan communities;

and our low socio economic communities.

We acknowledge that to enable increased participation

our community “system” requires strengthening and

enhancing. To that end we are also funded to focus on

enhancing quality coaching within the community;

enhancing the community’s capability of delivery and

finding more spaces and places for participants to play

and recreate in. Again those priorities align with the Sport

NZ Community Sport strategy and the implementation

of our co-created (Aktive, Sport Waitakere, Harbour

Sport, CLM Community Sport and ourselves) response

“The Auckland Approach to Community Sport” which is

to increase physical activity in Auckland.

Our Health and Wellness programmes continue to play a

significant role in our community work. We are extremely

proud of the efforts of our Health and Wellness team who

deliver the ADHB and CMDHB Green Prescription and

Active Families contracts to our local communities. Their

achievements and successes are captured elsewhere

within this annual report. The relationship between our

two Health Boards continues to be very strong and we

remain committed to and supportive of each other.

So, in summary, we have some exciting challenges in

front of us to address many issues and while change is

on the uptake, to make a significant impact we need to

comprehend our work takes time. Being in the middle

of a four-five year funding cycle we trust that this year’s

annual report clearly illustrates the milestones and

successes that we have achieved thus far; along with the

learnings we have encountered on the way.

We are indebted to our volunteer Board of Trustees. They

met on 9 occasions throughout the last financial year

and their stewardship and guidance was welcomed by

our management team.

Likewise, we owe a huge thanks to our committed and

talented staff. They go out of their way to deliver a high

quality service to our communities. Without doubt we

are proud of the fact that in our 2018 Stakeholder Survey

results nine out of ten stakeholders have confidence in

Sport Auckland’s leadership. That is a reflection of each

and every individual’s valued contribution to their work.

The stakeholder relationships they have built within

their community is sincerely appreciated.

We thank all of our stakeholders and community for

placing such a high element of trust in us, as one of many

partners in the region who are aiming to make Auckland

the most active city in the world; and in our efforts to

inspire our communities to live healthy active lifestyles.

We hope you enjoy the read,

MESSAGE

from Aktive

Together with Sport New Zealand, Auckland Council and other key regional partners,

Aktive – Auckland Sport & Recreation (Aktive) and Sport Auckland are working

collaboratively to achieve the vision of Auckland being the world’s most active city. The

foundation of this is the locally-led strategy: The Auckland Approach to Community

Sport.

Continued and concentrated efforts on this strategy will make a significant positive

impact on physical activity levels in Auckland communities.

Sport Auckland’s team has played a vital role in growing and delivering The Auckland

Approach to Community Sport in 2017/18 through advancing local solutions to address

local needs in targeted Communities of Activity and engaging with these communities

to build strong platforms to sustain this valuable work.

There are a number of achievements of note this year including: growth in Young

People events in Communities of Activity; success in capability work with clubs, schools

and community organisations; and the addition of three primary schools across

key programmes. The team is also fostering strong stakeholder relationships with

organisations including our District Health Boards, Auckland Council, Local Boards,

schools and educational institutions.

With the introduction of Howick into Sport Auckland’s remit, initial engagement with

the Howick Local Board has been positive and ActivAsian is making an immediate

impact in the area, as well as in central Auckland. We look forward to this going from

strength to strength.

In addition, Sport Auckland assisted with the co-creation of a new Relationship Charter

and worked closely with Aktive’s Coaching and Talent Development team to further

boost work in this area. Efforts have also contributed to growth in participation and

membership for school clusters with quality opportunities and experiences.

“Examples of good connections are hand in hand

through relationships with Sport Auckland. Sport is

the confidence builder, creating a sense of belonging

for those experiencing life in New Zealand for the first

time (high immigration levels).”

School Principal

These and other local initiatives were supplemented by Aktive’s regional programmes

including HERA – Everyday Goddess and Good Sports, all of which delivered services

with Sport Auckland to communities and focused on getting more young people active.

Strong collaborative stakeholder relationships are supporting the focused delivery of

The Auckland Approach to Community Sport in targeted Communities of Activity. We

value the commitment and contribution of Sport Auckland’s Chair Andrew Williams,

CEO Mike Elliott, and the entire board and team of Sport Auckland. Congratulations on

another significant year of achievement; we look forward to building on this work with

Sport Auckland towards a more active Auckland, community by community.
