Do you have a project that will get more school aged students involved in organised sport?

Sport Waikato is helping sporting organisations, clubs, and schools at a local level - through the KiwiSport Waikato Regional Partnership. This is an opportunity for groups to apply for funds that will help to launch projects that align with community priorities and KiwiSport outcomes.

The KiwiSport Regional Partnership Fund (RPF) is a government funded initiative that helps to get more school-aged students (5-18) participating in organised sport, with more opportunities and the potential to develop better skills.

Applications are now being sought for the Community Partnership and Kick Start Funds for the Waikato region.

The Community Partnership Fund allows for Sporting Organisations, School clusters and Clubs to apply for funding for projects that target community needs. Applicants are required to partner with organisations to deliver sporting projects that aim to achieve KiwiSport outcomes and meet community priorities with regards to youth participation in sport.

The Kick Start Fund is just that, a fund that helps clubs, schools and community organisations to kick start a new sporting project. For more information and for the criteria associated with each fund please refer to the information document on the Sport Waikato website for the Community Partnerships and Kick Start Funds close on the 15th of November. Applications can be found at the above website.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss your options or potential projects, please do not hesitate to contact Sport Waikato on 07 858 5388
