Sport Otago’s community sport team work with Regional Sports Organisations and clubs throughout Otago to improve their capability.
We do this through best practice advice utilising the skills of our experienced team who have a range of best practice models, templates, and tools to help achieve this outcome. This includes the latest products from Sport New Zealand (Sport NZ).
In these challenging times, we want to ensure all sports organisations are planning for the future so we can offer advice, training, and guidance in specific areas as listed:
Leadership and Governance
Planning and Administration
Workforce planning: recruitment, training, and support
Starting a new club
Funding and Fundraising
Health and Safety
If we are unable to assist directly, we have access to independent expertise.
Volunteers really do make sport happen. To look after and support your volunteers, it is important to ensure the different jobs are shared and suit the individuals, and that the people involved have clear role descriptions. This will enable people to enjoy their time in sport, feel valued, and continue to love sport for years to come.
Sport Otago works alongside the Women in Sport Otago (WISPO) network, which is a local branch of Women in Sport - Aotearoa (WISPA). This group is passionate about creating opportunities, equity, and visibility for women and girls in sport in our region. If you would like more information on how they can support your sport or activity, or to join the WISPO network, get in contact by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
