Strengthen & Adapt | Updates

After months of consultation, research, planning and preparation, the basketball community’s Strengthen and Adapt (S&A) Plan has been given the green light to proceed with an initial $3 million budget. We believe this will grow as more supporters and partners throughout New Zealand back this plan. For more, see the S&A webpage here.

The Plan’s origins dates back to 2020 when the Government announced a wider $265m investment to assist the sports sector in its short, medium, and long-term recovery after COVID-19 hit for the first time. The aim is to help the sport sector to achieve three outcomes:

  • Reset and rebuild
  • Strengthen and adapt
  • Different and better.
