Good Sports is all about creating positive sporting experiences for children and young people. It does this by supporting and educating parents, caregivers, coaches, teachers and sport leaders, who all contribute to children’s sport.
Netball is one of the national sport organisations that promotes the Good Sports philosophy.
Both practitioners and researchers agree that many issues in youth sport stem from adult involvement. These issues include poor side-line behaviour, overuse injury, burnout and disaffection with sport - and they can hinder success on and off the Netball court.
To address these issues and give children and young people the best chance of developing a lifelong love of sport, Good Sports focuses on raising adults’ awareness about their behaviours in youth sport and, if necessary, promoting a positive shift in that behaviour.
In partnership with Aktive and Sport New Zealand, Good Sports is funded by New Zealand Community Trust and AUT.

I wanted to take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude for the successful season we had at Manurewa Netball Centre. The support and resources you've provided have made this season enjoyable. The quality of the umpire workshops you provide are greatly appreciated. Thank you also for the amazing comms throughout the season, the prompt responses and actions taken on requests we asked throughout the season.
