Asian Sport Survey – Primary School Students
The Asian community are activated, advocated and represented at community levels across play, active recreation and sport
In the 2006 census, 17.8% of the North Shore population were classified as Asian, and of those 44% were Chinese and 23.9% were Korean. These populations statistics are growing every year. Therefore, increasing sporting opportunities for all ethnic groups across the North Harbour Region is an important goal for Harbour Sport. To facilitate this goal Harbour Sport created a project called “ActivAsian”.
Since the start of the project in 2009, ActivAsian aims to inspire and empower the Asian community to be active and lead healthy lives. This is achieved by strengthening, developing, and upskilling our Asian community to be leaders (Build Capability), increasing Asian community’s participation in play, active recreation, and sport (Increase Participation), becoming leaders and a trusted source of the Asian community within the sector (Increase Awareness) and supporting and upskilling the sector in Diversity and Inclusion (Inclusion in Sport).
The ActivAsian team have also identified five Focus Areas: Health & Wellbeing, Women and Girls, Sector D&I Development and Club Capability, Tamariki and Rangatahi and; Sustainable and locally-led initiatives.
We are passionate about what we do, and strive to provide the best quality experience for our communities. Therefore, we can ensure the holistic benefits of participation in sport and recreation is received, subsequently improving people’s quality of life and contributing to a sense of belonging in New Zealand.
2006年的人口调查显示，亚洲人占北岸总人口的17.8%，其中的44%为华人, 23.9% 为韩国人。为北岸地区所有族群增加体育机会是Harbour Sport非常重视的目标。为了促进这个目标Harbour Sport启动了“活跃亚裔”计划.
액티베아시안 배경 정보
2006년 센서스 조사에서 노스쇼어 거주 아시안인구는 17.8% 이며, 그 가운데 44%가 중국인으로 분류됩니다. 노스하버 지역을 걸쳐서 모든 인종들의 스포팅 기회를 증대시키는 것은 하버 스포트 의 중요한 목적입니다.
2009년에 시작된 이래로, 액티베시안 프로젝트는 아시안 커뮤니티 특히, 노스쇼어 지역의 중국인과 한인에 집중하여 그들의 스포츠 참여 증가에 목표를 두어왔습니다. 이런 목표는 스포츠에 대한 정보의 접근성을 증가시키고, 지역 스포츠 기관들과 클럽들이 아시안 커뮤니티와 연계하는 능력을 증진시킴으로서 궁극적으로는 아시안 커뮤니티 내에서 스포츠 기회를 향상시키는 것으로 이루어지게 됩니다.
하버 스포트의 엑티베이시안 프로젝트는 중국 커뮤니티를 우선적으로 한 구상계획이었습니다.
이 계획의 세가지 주요 목표는:
- 아시안들의 스포츠 활동기회, 특별히 취학아동들에게 집중된 기회를 증진 시킵니다
- 아시안 커뮤니티의 스포트와 레크레이션 기회들에 관한 정보 접근성을 증진 시킵니다
- 더 많은 아시안들이 스포트에 참여하기를 장려 합니다

NORTH HARBOUR ASIAN DEMOGRAPHICS
Harbour Sport ActivAsian is delighted to present the latest North Harbour Asian Population Infographic (2018 – date), featuring the total Asian population in the North Harbour region as well as other insightful data.
For the purpose of this infographic, the North Harbour region is defined by the geographic boundaries of the five Auckland Council Local Boards that Harbour Sport operates within, which are Upper Harbour Local Board, Kaipatiki Local Board, Devonport-Takapuna Local Board, Hibiscus And Bays Local Board and Rodney Local Board.
Not only does this highlight the exceptional numbers of the Asian population residing in the region, but it also emphasises the significance for sports organisations, or any businesses for that matter, to focus on cultural intelligence and ethnic engagement.
The Harbour Sport ActivAsian initiative has spent the last 11 years empowering, inspiring and collaborating with the Asian community. We have a wealth of experience, expertise and resources to support and develop your organisation and/or business.
