Student Coaching

Supporting and Developing Student Coaches

Nuku Ora works closely with College Sport Wellington and a number of Regional Sports Organisations to deliver the Student Coaching Programme. Over the past 4 years, we have worked with over 30 different colleges and developed over 1,000 student coaches. The programme aims to;

  • Increase the confidence and competence of secondary school student coaches
  • Enable colleges and Regional Sports Organisations to provide ongoing support to student coaches
  • Ensure more children and young people are staying in organised sport due to quality coaching and coaches providing a positive sporting experience.

Summer sports that will be covered in the February workshops are Volleyball, Touch, Futsal and Floorball. In May the winter sports will be covered: Netball, Basketball, Hockey, Football, Rugby, and other sports if there is demand for them. 

If you want to get involved, talk to the Sports Coordinator at your school or email Tim Mannix, Community Development Advisor - Coaching, Nuku Ora on info@nukuora.org.nz to register your interest or for more information.
