Harbour Sport is calling on clubs in Wellsford to make use of the support opportunities available to them.
General manager Kevin O’Leary says clubs are welcome to have the best of both worlds in getting resources from Sport Northland, as well as Harbour Sport.
“Even though clubs may compete in the north, Wellsford is within our geographic area which dictates where we can offer support,” O’Leary says.
“Ultimately, we would love to see Wellsford clubs play in Harbour Sport events but our role at this stage is simply to engage. It has been on an ‘ask don’t tell’ basis.”
He says that the resources that Harbour Sport can offer include help with marketing, event planning and volunteer management.
Harbour Sport has also been making inroads with schools in the area, developing plans with Mahurangi College and Kaipara on how their sporting goals could match opportunities to play within Harbour events.
O’Leary says that Harbour Sport is appointing a new staff member to improve links with primary schools in the region and increase opportunities for participation.
