Young People's Survey
As you may know, Sport New Zealand has undertaken a major piece of research into sport and recreation in the lives of young New Zealanders, called the Young People’s Survey.
I’m pleased to announce that we have just released the initial findings in the Young People’s Survey report and you can download it now from www.sportnz.org.nz/yps
This report is rich with information that will be of value to every organisation within the sport and recreation sector. It is the most significant piece of research into young New Zealanders’ participation in sport and recreation in more than 10 years.
This tool can help the sector consider how we provide sport and recreation opportunities to young New Zealanders. But gathering the information is only the first step, interpreting it is up to all of us. This is where you and your organisation can play a big part.
Over the coming months we will be looking for feedback from you about these results. To reap the benefit I hope you will drill down into this information and consider how it affects your organisation and the people that you provide sporting opportunities for. I urge you to share this with your organisation’s senior management and Board. Together you might consider this information and how the sector should respond to what New Zealand’s young people are telling us.
We will be posting hard copies to organisations throughout the sector soon and I believe it should not sit idly upon your shelf. We want to see more young people enjoying and excelling through more sport and recreation. The information streaming out of the Young People’s Survey will help if we analyse it and respond to it carefully.
Organisations can give feedback either to a Sport NZ Relationship Manager or by emailing email@example.com.
