Abstract

 

Sport New Zealand (Sport NZ) commissioned this study to provide guidance and direction in the development of facilities for aquatic sports on a national basis. The National Facilities Strategy for Aquatic Sports aims to provide a framework for developing future facilities which are appropriately scaled and located to meet the needs of users: locally, regionally, nationally or internationally.

 The findings of this Strategy are covered in 6 key areas which are:

 

1.     Competitive Network

2.     Community Network

3.     Cost of Providing and accessing facilities

4.     Changing demographic profile in New Zealand

5.     Developing facilities and decision making process

6.     Developing the Road Map

The competitive and community aquatic facility networks have been presented separately however they are completely inter-related and one cannot be reviewed without full consideration of the other. It is therefore important that all aquatic facilities are considered from both perspectives throughout all stages of facility planning.

This amended version reflects some recent changes to the network of facilitites (updated August 2013)
