Sport Tasman is one of 14 charitable regional sports trusts that support New Zealanders to be more active and healthy.
Our aim is to improve community well being. Physical activity, recreation and sport are our key tools.
As a charity, we work alongside our communities in Kaikoura, Marlborough, Buller, Nelson and Tasman to create almost one million physical activity opportunities across Te Tau Ihu (Top of the South Island).
We love getting more people, more active, more often and know that if we are physically well and active, then as a community we will be more connected and vibrant.
Sport and recreation enriches our lives physically, socially, emotionally, cognitively and even spiritually. It also contributes economically an estimated $5.2 billion to New Zealand's economy.
We are enormously grateful to all of our funders, partners and supporters who help make sport, recreation, physical activity and play available to so many individuals, families and communities.
SPORT BENEFITS OUR COMMUNITY
Sport helps to bring communiites together and is a powerful social development tool. Across Te Tau Ihu, sport and recreation actively engages more than 80% of our population. Some 25,000 volunteers help make sport and recreation possible across 540 clubs and community organisations and 117 schools and colleges.
