We embrace our PARTNERS

Sport has the ability to change lives and empower people from the playground to the podium.

At Sport Waitākere, our purpose is to enable healthy and active lives in our community. We do this through providing programmes, workshops, activations, mentoring, resources, events and support at low to no cost to our community.

We work alongside schools, clubs, coaches, volunteers and community groups to improve the quality and accessibility of sport and physical activity with the generous support of funders and partners.

We work within the boundaries of Auckland Council’s three local boards:

  • Whau Local Board
  • Waitākere Ranges Local Board
  • Henderson-Massey Local Board

​​​​​​​​​​​We believe in the value physical activity brings and that everyone should have the opportunity to participate. We have been serving our community since 1991 and governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees.

Sport and recreation would not be possible without the amazing volunteers that dedicate their time to sport and recreation. If you are wanting to volunteer, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Wanting to support the community but don’t have the time to volunteer? As a charitable trust, Sport Waitākere always welcomes financial support from generous donors. Please contact us for further information.
