By KRIS DANDO Three young lawn bowlers are the latest off the Porirua pro- duction line in the sport, and they are looking forward to representing their region in Auckland later this month. Seamus Curtin, 12, from Plimmerton School and Brady Amer, 13, and Bradley Down, 14, (both from Aotea College) took part in the recent Kitty- hawk tournament in Palmer- ston North. The event is for bowlers under 19 and is part of a path- way established to identify future national players. The three are part of a strong bowls culture being developed at Aotea College, in partnership with Plimmerton Bowling Club. Each played three games in Palmerston North, often pitted against bowlers much older than themselves. Amer finished sixth, Down eighth and Curtin ninth. It was really good to see how we competed against players much older than your- self, it was a good experience, Amer says. They all qualified for the Kittyhawk nationals in Pakuranga over Easter. We ve all got a few years left yet, playing at this [Kitty- hawk] level, so we know we re going to improve, Down says. Coach Rachel Wybourne Curtin says the three will prove to be good role models for other young players. Her Aotea College bowls pro- gramme has 19 registered players. It is a sport that continues to grow in popularity, Down says. People need to just get it out of their heads it s an old per- son s sport. It s really social and you re making friends for life. He and his fellow bowlers put in up to five hours of prac- tice on the greens each week, as well as playing both days of the weekend throughout sum- mer. Good sports benefit Porirua community More than $300,000 has been chan- nelled into Porirua community groups, schools and sporting organisations through KiwiSport, during the past three years. The grants provided via KiwiSport have enabled more than 18,000 schoolchildren from 27 primary and six secondary schools in the area the opportunity to participate in sporting activities and skills, said Sport Wel- lington chief executive Phil Gibbons when he released the tri-annual Kiwi- Sport report recently. KiwiSport has been a resounding success in the Wellington region but more so in Porirua with 99 per cent of the schools receiving KiwiSport funded programmes or projects, he said. We look forward to the next three years where we can consolidate these opportunities at the grassroots and developmental levels. Playing regular sport gives children a wide range of benefits which indirectly impact the community as a whole. KiwiSport s largest investment in the area has been to Porirua City Council for delivery of the Student Sport Transition Project. The project aims to provide information, training, support and facilitate connections to develop a seamless transition (and participation) in sport through and beyond school, in the hope of reducing the drop off in sports by students in their later years of school. Another KiwiSport programme con- centrating on ocean water sports ena- bled senior pupils from Russell School spend a morning keelboat sailing on Wellington Harbour in December, as part of a final push before leaving primary school for intermediate. Russell School principal Sose Annandale said the programme was of immense benefit for the children. The challenge of such sports for the children is when they are out of their comfort zone it gives them a huge sense of conquering their inner fear and in turn enables the thought, trig- ger or message that they can do any- thing. Sport Wellington s KiwiSport man- ager Peter Woodman-Aldridge said community consultation last year to assess the validity of the project con- cluded the programmes were having a significant impact on the region and the number of school-aged children participating in sport. More school-age kids are being involved in sports. More teachers and parents are trained as coaches and more community and sporting organis- ations are partnering with schools to provide sporting opportunities and activities. This has been fantastic for the children involved and the com- munity as a whole, he said. Applications for round 10 of Kiwi- Sport funding in the Wellington Region closes on March 18.
