Ignite Sport

Aspire is our bi-annual one day inspirational leadership day for potential and Senior Sports Leaders from secondary schools across the Wellington Region, and we are excited to bring it to you again in 2019.

It is a chance for students to be inspired sports people who have demonstrated good leadership and an ability to influence others. Students will hear their stories, lessons and what motivates them.

In 2017 we had 260 Senior Students across 30 secondary schools who heard from 14 presenters/guests. We have revised the programme from feedback received after the last Aspire so 2019 plans to be even better.

More information will be sent to schools in early 2019.

 Aspire Date 2019


Here are some student reflections from 2017:

‘It’s not what life throws at you it’s how you deal with it’

‘I was inspired by personal experiences and great advice’

‘If you don’t have an overall goal you won’t achieve anything’

‘Aim high, work hard for yourself and family, make wise decisions.’

‘Develop yourself to become a good person off the court to become great on the court’
