Webinar replay: Building strong sport partnerships with schools

Webinars59 Min Watch

Do you want to learn the ins and outs of navigating the school sport system to make a lasting impact?

Schools are a key environment for rangatahi in sport, and it can be challenging at times for clubs or sports codes to offer their opportunity through schools. If you’re a community sport club or organisation looking to build strong partnerships with local schools, this webinar replay is specifically for you.

We shared expert insights on what clubs and community sport organisations need to know about schools, including how to effectively communicate your club’s mission and programmes and how to create mutually beneficial opportunities.
