Ignite Sport is a youth development organisation offering a unique delivery style. Using sport and recreation to engage, Ignite Sport encourages young people to consider character, values, balance and heart.
Ignite Sport mentors 900+ young people annually on youth development or sports academy programmes, using recreational activities to reinforce important life skills.
We have a proud history and have many years’ experience in youth development work, academy-based camps and programmes for young athletes.
We work with Years 7-13 in over 10 schools in the Wellington/Kapiti region and with refugee youth on programmes that engage and empower young people to be more socially and personally responsible in all aspects of their lives, set goals and to reach their full potential.
For some programmes and other areas of our work we partner with organisations such as the New Zealand Red Cross, Hutt City Council, and Wellington City Council.
We also run several annual events including sports tournaments and inspirational workshops, partner with people who help out at a local sporting level, as well as being involved with activities at several community events throughout the year.
Be safe and remember to not only be good but also give 4good!
From the 4Good team.
