Within the home environment, young people can be creative and inspiring, encouraging family members of all ages to ‘have a go’ and try new activities.

SportStart Home was created by our Sport Canterbury team in 2018, to inspire our tamariki to lead play and activity in the home environment. The outcome is happier, healthier families.

Here are steps to get started with SportStart Home activities:

  1. Support your child to 'have a go.'
  2. Be creative about spaces to play.
  3. See what you can find around home to use for equipment.
  4. Encourage the whanau to play together.
  5. Aim for 15 minutes of active play.
  6. Get outside when you can!
