Ally Hislop

Education & Community Outreach Manager

I’m grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the well-being of tamariki in our community. It’s exciting to see young people having positive experiences with physical activity and learning the vital skills that will help them to be both a great sportsperson & contribute to them being great people.

Chloe Macaulay

Sport Performance & Programmes Coach

My favourite part about coaching the school programmes is showing students that there is a whole world of learning and exploration that happens after they exit the classroom and that these values can come from being active and having fun.

James Rennie

Sport Performance & Programmes Coach

Creating connections for students whether that be to a sport, an activity or a value. It is very rewarding to witness their ‘lightbulb’ moment.

I enjoy providing opportunities for rangatahi to experience and find joy through movement whilst navigating team challenges.
