WCC Emerging Athletes Programme
The Wellington City Council Sport Development Programme is designed to empower young Wellington athletes to actively pursue their goals in sport and in life. Guided by the Balance is Better principals, this programme focuses on the holistic development of the athlete. It is founded in the belief that the diversity of experiences and opportunities participants are exposed to will form beliefs that will influence their performance in sport and in life.
The programme, which is funded by the Wellington City Council and overseen by Nuku Ora, grants money to a handful of regional sporting organizations to assist them in developing systems and structures that support the creation of a sport development programme within their respective organizations. The programme suggested should integrate and support established and pre-existing programmes/pathways, targeting emerging athletes' year 11 and above.
