Sport NZ Coaching For Impact Programme - Applications Now Open

Coaching for Impact is a free coaching programme which was introduced by Sport NZ in 2021, aimed at growing a collaborative network of coaches who can influence positive change in youth sport (aligning with Balance is Better). We know coaches play a huge part when it comes to a great sporting experience that helps young people develop, grow a lifelong love of sport and reap the wide-ranging benefits it brings.


Participants on the programme are supported through residential learning camps where they can collaborate with their peers, online workshops with international experts, approved coach developers and personalised development plans.
