High Performance Sport Services

We believe Māori cultural roots offer a rich source of wisdom that can benefit both athletes and coaches, providing access to traditional practices such as whakawhanaungatanga and Tūrangawaewae.

Incorporating Māori knowledge into their teams can foster a greater sense of unity and purpose, harnessing the collective strength and resilience of their athletes. Sports teams can establish deeper connections with the communities they represent, generating higher levels of support and engagement.


"Hone Heke has been instrumental in maintaining a positive culture within the North Harbour rugby environment. He is passionate about people, and from my experience with Hone Heke he has a real genuine heart to see people succeed."
