Sport Waikato is well into the swing of things for 2015. 

With summer sport over, most sports are well into the start of the winter season, as the days become not only shorter but colder! Sport Waikato has been very busy recently, juggling a number of different balls in the air. One of our biggest projects at the moment is the development of Moving Waikato 2020.We have embarked on a journey, by developing an insights document that we believe will be very useful to the Waikato region going forward. 

This is an opportunity for us to provide leadership to those in the sector, so that we are more focused and targeted from delivery through to outcomes. Moving Waikato 2020 allows us all to not only be better informed but also to develop regional insight and understanding. This educational resource will guide the strategic priorities for the region over the next five years and is Waikato’s strategy, not just Sport Waikato’s strategy. 

Sport Waikato are dedicated to fostering and brokering strong partnerships that inspire and enable the people of the Waikato to be active and healthy for life. Moving Waikato 2020 will be used to lead, inform and support decisions related to sport, recreation and physical activity over the next five years – and we invite everyone in the Waikato to join us on this journey. Together, we can plan and contribute to achieve an active, regional community.

Please have a look at Moving Waikato 2020  - we invite you to comment and provide feedback to us. We want to hear what you think! We will be using this document over the coming months to develop a draft strategy, at which point we will be engaging with the wider community in the process, and seeking their input on where we are headed.

Our future is looking very exciting – and this is a great piece of work that we are really proud of and wanted to share with you.
