Supporting balanced female health

Sport NZ recognises that female-specific needs in community sport are unique.  It is critical for coaches, parents, instructors and administrators to understand female health be able to respond and provide support for young people to be active in ways that boost their wellbeing.

Balanced Female Health is a new resource for adults supporting young people in community sport. This resource was developed by health professionals working in the sport sector and covers changes throughout female puberty, the menstrual cycle, and factors that impact the physical health and mental wellbeing of all young people.
