Te Korowai – Sport Performance Coaches New Zealand has been established to further support and develop the New Zealand performance coaching sector and ensure that coaches receive adequate support with a focus on wellbeing. It will provide an independent voice for performance coaches in New Zealand.

“Te Korowai is really about establishing a community for New Zealand’s performance coaches,” says the organisation’s Chair and Snow Sports NZ Park and Pipe Programme Head Coach Tom Willmott.

Joining Wilmott on the Board are some of New Zealand’s most accomplished coaches, including Raylene Bates (Para/Athletics), Mel Bosman (Rugby), Angie Dougal (Trampolining), Kirsten Hellier (Athletics), Mike Hesson (Cricket), Yvette McCausland-Durie (Netball) & Craig Philpott (Rugby).

Opening Membership offer

“To be an independent and sustainable representative body for New Zealand’s Performance Coaches, we need to build our own revenue streams. The primary one will be through our membership programme,” Tom Wilmott says.

Te Korowai is now giving performance coaches the opportunity to become members for less than $1 a day.

Membership is open to all performance coaches – current or past professional coaches whose primary focus is on coaching elite level individual athlete at a high performance level.

“For $360 per year or $30 per month, coaches will get access to a wellbeing programme and advisory support services, connection to the performance coach community and a free pair of Adidas shoes valued at $240,” Wilmott says.

“We believe we are building a compelling value-adding membership programme and we encourage performance coaches to sign up.”
