Para Sport Collective

The Para Sport Collective is for Para athletes and coaches across the wide range of Para sports. These Para athletes are in the midrange of their Para sport journey (i.e. pre High Performance) where there is currently limited support. PNZ will develop the Para Sport Collective to have an inclusive selection process ensuring a balance of male and female Para athletes and coaches.

The central purpose of the Para Sport Collective is connecting Para athletes and coaches while surrounding them with support and a range of learning and development opportunities.

Over a 3-year period the Para Sport Collective approach will include 6 national in-person camps (alternating between North Island and South Island locations to ensure accessibility) across two intakes and bi-monthly virtual connection opportunities. There will be two intakes over the period of the project.

PNZ has co-designed the Para Sport Collective with the PNZ Athletes Council, NSOs/NDSOs and coaches to understand current state and needs. This includes understanding and complementing initiatives being delivered at regional level in this space.

A monitoring and evaluation framework has been developed to track the impact and outcomes of the Para Sport Collective, as the basis for ongoing improvements.
