What is the most important thing in the world? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata. It is the people, it is the people, it is the people.
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.
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.
To fulfil our purpose and vision, we need to be the best we can be individually and collectively.
We are professional, we always do what we say we will do and we take pride in our personal and organisational performance.
Sport Canterbury and our people are leaders; anticipating, striving for innovation, breaking down barriers, being proactive.
Always learning and evolving, we are receptive, open minded and continually learning, applying and re-learning.
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.
Within that space the sections reflect our diverse stakeholders across our community – advocates for the value of play, physical activity, sporting participation and healthy choices.
The sections are also meaningful to us as a reflection of our regional approach – from Greater Christchurch, to Mid and South Canterbury and the West Coast.
The highlighted section is intended to suggest that the viewer (yourself) plays a role in our Sport Canterbury world – whether as teacher, coach, parent, health professional or activity provider. We all have the ability to enable change and inspire healthier choices.
