Young People Profile

A resource to help organisations better understand the experiences and needs of young people.

Developing a love of play, active recreation and sport at an early age helps encourage life-long participation. That's why young people aged 5-18 years are the primary focus of Sport New Zealand's Community Sport Strategy.

The information in this resource is based on national and international evidence. It is intended to be a starting point to help organisations better understand what young people want.
