Welcome to our new partner, the Hawke's Bay Community Fitness Centre Trust
From 2018, proceeds raised from The Cocktail Party will be for the benefit of the Hawke's Bay Community Fitness Centre Trust.
Hawke's Bay Community Fitness Centre Trust's vision is to establish a world-class sports and recreation hub and community health centre at the Hawke's Bay Regional Sports Park, as a Centre of Excellence in Human Performance, by supporting all age groups across the Hawke's Bay region in community health and fitness, school sports development, community sport along with sports and health science research.
To promote its programmes, the facility will include an indoor community sports & recreation hall, strength and conditioning gym for sports and wellness development, community health & fitness gym, sprint track for speed & fitness testing, community fitness trail, wellness tutorial rooms, a sports medicine centre and an onsite accommodation hostel.
It will be a transformational project for enhancing human performance excellence, with special programmes for:
The whole community, from encouraging health and well-being for all ages through to sports and recreation development in schools and clubs
- Across the whole Hawke’s Bay region from Central Hawke’s Bay, Hastings and Napier to Wairoa
To achieve this vision, programmes from the world leading AUT University, AUT Millennium in Auckland and nationally top-ranked EIT in collaboration with the Hawke's Bay District Health Board and Sport Hawke's Bay, will include:
Education to encourage healthy eating and physical activity, from pre-school through to the elderly
- Training and guidance to schools and sports groups on healthy lifestyles, physical literacy and sports performance development
The programmes are all research-led and specific to the groups to which they apply. EIT brings a leading national reputation and experience as a leader in programmes for youth at risk, alongside their highly successful partnerships with the regions’ secondary schools.
The programmes of the Hawke's Bay Community Fitness Centre Trust operate in a different space and will supplement the more general programmes of Sport Hawke’s Bay.
