A good coach can make all the difference to an aspiring athlete. If you're interested in becoming a coach, there are a number of organisations you can contact.
- Sport New Zealand runs courses to equip coaches for an inclusive environment for all athletes.
- The AllSports programme supports clubs and coaches interested in creating more opportunities for physically disabled young people to participate in sport.
- Special Olympics New Zealand runs training courses and certification for prospective coaches.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of many sporting organisations and often regarded as unsung heroes. Approach any volunteer and you'll often find they claim the fulfillment they get from facilitating the recreation of others is far greater than any public accolade they could ever receive. If you're interested in getting involved, contact any of the organisations listed on the Get Involved: Sporting Organisations page.
