Moving Waikato is a unified strategy for physical activity through play, active recreation and sport for the Waikato region, and gives focus and clarity towards 2025. It seeks to build on the positive momentum of existing partnerships and to increase the provision of opportunities for both participation and quality experiences for the people of the region. A strategy in which partnerships achieve results.

The strategy has been developed in collaboration and consultation with key partners regionally and nationally, and follows on from evidence gathered to guide and inform strategic decisions.

Horizon One success

The recent review has concluded that Moving Waikato is serving the region well, providing an opportunity to lead and enable sector partners to guide outcomes for our Waikato communities. The strategy has enabled stability in direction, reporting and provided structure for organisational delivery. Moving Waikato has further enabled partners in delivery, stakeholders and funding investors clarity of vision and purpose.

Sport Waikato has developed subject matter expertise and begun to lead the sector through insights and regional facility planning. We have built capability in sport (through sports plans and Regional Sporting Organisation partner plans) and lifted the game with our key stakeholders.

Horizon Two

Based on the evidence, insights and changing environment, the Moving Waikato advisory group resets the targets in each three-year horizon to meet the needs of the communities. We are now moving into horizon two.

One Vision: Everyone out there and active
Purpose: A healthy, vibrant, physically active region through play, active recreation and sport
Goal: 75% of all Waikato adults and young people meeting the physical activity guidelines
