BBNZ | Aktive: Good Sports Foundation Modules

Basketball New Zealand and Aktive (Auckland Sport and Recreation) have developed three online interactive learning modules focussing on Aktive’s ‘Good Sports’ coaching philosophy and principles. The Good Sports modules are part of the theory component for both the Kiwi Hoops Introductory Coach Course and BBNZ Community Coach Course (for those that completed Kiwi Hoops at an earlier date) and must be completed by all participants completing these courses.

The Good Sports Modules are:

1. Introduction to Good Sports
2. Planning and Delivery
3. Good Sports and Community 

Basketball New Zealand believe that completing the Good Sports modules will enable the key adult influencers; parents, coaches, caregivers and teachers to have the necessary skills to be able to create a positive and meaningful sporting experience for our kiwi tamariki.

What is Good Sports?

Good Sports aims to create positive sporting experiences for Kiwi kids by supporting and educating the key adult influencers in children’s sport: parents, caregivers, coaches, teachers and sport administrators.

We all know sport can be a vehicle to help children to be active, healthy and learn life skills; critical in the success of these things happening, is the quality of support that adults provide children in sport.

Good Sports advocates for adult behaviours and attitudes in children’s sport to always fall under a Climate of Development. Whether you are a parent, caregiver, coach, teacher and/or sport administrator involved in children’s sport, being under a Climate of Development ensures children have the best chance of having positive sporting experiences and ultimately growing a lifelong love with basketball.
