LET'S GET MOVING
KEEP ACTIVE DURING THE LOCKDOWN
OUR FITNESS CENTRES ARE SHUT, OUR SPORTS COACHES AREN'T OUT IN SCHOOLS AND OUR CHILDREN'S GYMNASTICS & TRAMPOLINE PROGRAMMES ARE ON HOLD - BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN WE'RE NOT STILL 100% COMMITTED TO HELPING EVERYONE IN OUR COMMUNITY KEEP FIT AND ACTIVE DURING ISOLATION.
ONLINE WORKOUTS YOU CAN DO AT HOME
Every week we'll be posting our own workout routines here on our website and on our FaceBook pages. These workouts have been designed so you can do them at home without the need for specialist equipment, plus you can choose a routine that best suits your level of strength and fitness.
Released Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9am
Les Mills and MyZone have also made their fitness classes free during the lockdown. Go HERE for Les Mills and look for @myzonemoves on Facebook for the MyZone classes.
SILVER FITNESS WORKOUTS
Switch on your tablet, computer or smart TV, turn up your own music collection and join Holly as she takes you through some regular Silver Fitness workouts that you can scale to suit your level of strength and fitness. You won't need any specialist equipment - just a chair and maybe some cans from your pantry.
SPORTS SKILLS VIDEO TUTORIALS
Our MainPower Primary School Sports Coaches will be posting regular sports skills tutorials, fitness videos and active challenges suitable for all primary school age children. They'll cover a range of sports focusing on different hand, eye and foot coordination requirements - and there will be a few surprises in there too.
HOME GYMNASTICS SKILLS VIDEOS
Our preschool and First Step gymnasts don't miss out, as coach Angela will be compiling some skills session videos that parents can do with their children through the enforced break. Blue and Ken will be there too!!

SHARING OUR EXPERIENCE & EXPERTISE WITH LOCAL SPORT TO BOOST PARTICIPATION
The North Canterbury Sport & Recreation Trust has formed positive working relationships with a variety of local sports clubs to assist them with administration, promotion, skills coaching and venue development and maintenance.
NCSRT has been working with the North Canterbury Basketball Association for many years to provide administration support. The Trust has also introduced a Mini-ball programme to help develop the skills of year 3/4 students before they start playing in the NCBA's Friday night competitions.
In 2015 the Rangiora Hockey Club and NCSRT began work on building a mini-hockey turf in Rangiora using materials sourced from earthquake damaged Porritt Park. The Trust provides a vital link between the Hockey Club and the Waimakariri DIstrict Council to secure use of the land for this turf at Dudley Park for the long term.
In 2017 the NCSRT coordinated the construction of a mini-hockey turf at Kaiapoi High School for the use of the Hinemoa-Kaiapoi Hockey Club, KHS and the Kaiapoi Netball Club.
