The WaterBoy breaks down barriers to give Kiwis an opportunity to participate in personal development activities.

We believe that everyone is a product of their environment.

We believe that sport is an integral part of growing up in New Zealand. It is a part of our culture.


Identify People

We identify people who want to do sport but can’t, for some reason. Barriers could be financial, disability, confidence, sexual orientation, age, gender, religion or other.



We create initiatives that help break down these barriers to give Kiwis an opportunity to do sport.


Tell Stories

We film these initiatives and make cool stories from them. Read some of our stories here.


Connect supporters

We give people an opportunity to sponsor these initiatives as a way of demonstrating their values and their community give-back.

The WaterBoy support more than just sport. We consider any opportunity or activity where participation will promote personal growth and development.
