UPDATE: 21 October 2020
The last meeting was based around a "working better together collaboratively" and this was recognised as an important aspect to the future of sport in Hikurangi. The focus of the next meeting is: purpose, MOU's, Visions, Goals - What do we think collaboration should look like for clubs in Hikurangi?
NEXT MEETING: WEDNESDAY 28 OCTOBER 2020 7PM @ HIKURANGI RUGBY CLUB

The latest Sports Collective meeting has recently been held and the general discussion was based around the continuation of the "sportville" model and a proposed timetable for how this looks to develop over the coming months. Find the relevant details below:

NEXT MEETING: Monday 23rd November, 6PM, VENUE: Hikurangi Rugby Club
UPDATE: 2 December 2020
The latest Sports Collective meeting differed from the agenda of addressing and discussing the proposed timeline. Instead, discussions took place around the future of sports in Hikurangi and what this looks like for the clubs, volunteers, committees, and clubrooms/venue's etc. A general consensus was reached that a new sporting facility is sought for Hikurangi and the various clubs need to be involved and motivated to bring that to reality. It was agreed to take a break over summer and to hold the next meeting in February with the request that at least one member from each sports club attend, and the goal is to set up a steering committee to progress the proposed plans for both the sports facility and club connectiveness. The invitation statement is as follows:
"The Hikurangi Sports Coalitions requests all sports and community groups to come together to develop a long term sports strategy, with a vision to build a new sports facility, and increase sporting opportunities within the urban and rural Hikurangi district. Our goals also include increased funding improved volunteer support, and effective communication".

hikurangi sports club collective
Back in March (pre-lockdown) Sport Northland held a meeting in the Memorial Hall to discuss potential projects in the Hikurangi community. There was discussion around a Sports Hub and a few smaller projects in the community. But in general it was agreed that a collective way forward was important.
"clubs working better together to provide more/better opportunities for the community"
I’d like to hold another meeting to continue to look at ways in which clubs could work together across common areas, some examples: Calendar alignment, reciprocal social event support, combined memberships, combined applications for funding, sharing of resources.
