Your application must be able to deliver opportunities for play, active recreation and / or sport. These activities might be characterised as follows:

  • Play: actions taken to give tamariki the time, space and permission to actively follow their own ideas and interests for their own reasons.
  • Active Recreation: generally non-competitive physical activities for enjoyment and wellbeing.
  • Sport: a game, competition or activity in which an individual or team competes against another or others for enjoyment and wellbeing.


We recognise that activities might include a combination of these activity types - we are interested in the predominant activity you are presenting. This is to ensure we get a good spread of activity opportunities and to enable us to understand where the demand is coming from in our communities.
