Here is some relevant information from the Sport Development team (of Sport NZ) from a recent forum held. The information and resources may be useful in assisting your understanding and application of the Balance is Better principles, along with the information regarding what other codes are doing in last week’s report.

Firstly, some high-level messages around using these documents and resources:

*Please note: The information within this document, Sport Parent Personas, is high-level and intended as a starting point to support thinking and development of strategies for engaging parents. We recognise that parents are diverse individuals with different motivations, experiences and needs and that one parent may sit across multiple personas. Ultimately, this document has been developed to support people who work with parents in youth sport setting.
