New Chairperson for Selwyn Sports Trust

30.05.2019

Rolleston’s Megan Harlick has recently been announced as the new Chairperson of the Selwyn Sports Trust, taking over from Mike Lay.

Megan has been part of the Trust as a trustee since 2016. She loves what the Trust has to offer sport, loves that it encourages children to engage in sport in a non-traditional way, and the fact it is changing the way children relate to sport.

Megan first experienced what the Trust had to offer when she became involved with the Selwyn Sports Trust through  Canterbury Basketball and the Koru Games. From there she began to learn about the Trust and what it stood for.

Megan and her family are heavily involved with sport, her husband James is an assistant coach and daughters Olivia and Alexandra both play netball. Megan has always worked, or taught, in the sporting arena and is currently a lecturer at Ara.

Megan commented that the Trust has grown remarkably over a short time and she is excited about what it has to offer sport in the future.

The Selwyn Sports Trust was established to promote and support participation in sport and recreation within the Selwyn District and establish the District a popular destination for sporting pursuits.

The Trust’s primary objective is to increase participation and volunteering in sport and active recreation by supporting, coordinating, and complementing, existing providers – Clubs, schools and community groups. They also provide encouragement for young people within the region to participate at community level and support those aspiring to regional and national level.
