LET'S GET MOVING
KEEP ACTIVE DURING UNCERTAIN TIMES
OUR FITNESS CENTRES ARE REOPENING, SPORTS COACHES ARE BACK IN SCHOOLS AND GYMNASTICS & TRAMPOLINE CLASSES ARE STARTING AGAIN BUT THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY AROUND KEEPING SPORTS AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES SAFE.
THE NCSRT IS COMMITTED TO HELPING EVERYONE IN OUR COMMUNITY KEEP FIT AND ACTIVE WHATEVER YOUR SITUATION.
ONLINE WORKOUTS YOU CAN DO AT HOME
After Friday 15th May we won't be posting any new workout routines, but we'll keep the routines on our website for anyone to do in their own time. 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.
SILVER FITNESS WORKOUTS
We have 10 SIlver Fitness Home Workouts available on this website so that even if you can't make it to live classes at any of our Fitness Centres you can still keep active at home.
SPORTS SKILLS VIDEO TUTORIALS
For children remaining at home our MainPower Primary School Sports Coaches have created a range of 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.
ONLINE GYMNASTICS SKILLS VIDEOS
Many of our trampoline and gymnastics programmes are up and running again (or will be shortly) but if you are unable to make those classes we'll keep our skills sessions videos available for a while longer.
Preschooler videos will focus on some fundamental movement and balance skills that parents can do with their children with the help of Blue and Ken and your own soft toy friends.
Sessions for 5-8 Year Olds will break down some more specialist gymnastics movements and skills, building build towards a full floor-type gymnastics routine.

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.
