North Shore Times:
By turning up the tunes and dialling down the competitiveness of school sport, increasing numbers of teenagers were enticed to get active on Auckland’s North Shore last year.
Small-sided games and a focus on the social aspects of sport were among the solutions students implemented in an award-winning project to get more of their peers playing sport.
A Kiwisport project involving students designing and delivering modified sporting opportunities, won a New Zealand Secondary School Sports Council innovation in school sport award.
The project was a collaboration between Harbour Sport and local high schools.
