“To develop well rounded successful young adults by promoting the philosophy of the student athlete”




“Promote education and health as vital to success through sport”



Sports Pathways Trust was established to develop a student / athlete model to assist youth to achieve their potential in education, achieve success in life and address inequality in education outcome particularly for at-risk youth.  The program is designed to complement the child and teenagers day to day school curriculum.

Sport for many New Zealand children can be the ideal pathway to learning. We have taken a holistic approach that considers all aspects of becoming a better person and achieving ones potential in education.

The Trust also intends to promote physical and mental health and wellbeing as essential to education and life success.
