Our Values

The Sport Canterbury team has a depth experience in community sport, event management and physical activity. We deliver programmes and events to teachers, coaches, sporting organisations, health professionals and people of all ages across the Canterbury West Coast region. Everything we do is about getting, and keeping, people engaged with sport and physical activity. Our Regional Sports Trust offices are in Christchurch, Mid Canterbury, South Canterbury and the West Coast.


The Sport Canterbury team is committed to ‘paddling together in the same waka’.

Our understated confidence comes from a ‘we are one’ team philosophy.   We believe in each other and look out for each other.

Committed to our people

We exist for the people of our communities; those that need us, those that want to work with us.

Inclusiveness, adaptability and embracing diversity underpin our commitment to serving the people of our communities.

Motivated to achieve real impact

We go above and beyond to create life changing experiences.

To achieve this we are committed to providing quality experiences for the people in our communities.

Ahead of the game

Always learning and evolving, we are receptive, open minded and continually learning, applying and re-learning.

Driven by excellence

To fulfil our purpose and vision, we need to be the best we can be individually and collectively.
