Snap BACK programs will engage young people in intentional, productive and constructive ways while recognizing and enhancing their strengths. These programs promote positive outcomes by
providing opportunities, fostering positive relationships and giving the support that is needed to develop young people’s assets and prevent risky behaviours.
This programme is for young wahine ages 12 to 18 years who need support to build confidence, self esteem and mentorship. Perfect for any young wahine with anxiety and other mental health barriors.
In conjunction with the NZ Police this programme is designed for youth at risk or disengaged youth. We provide a safe outlet, mentors and a place of belonging.
Goldie Oldies & Parkinsons Programme
Every Wednesday at 5.30pm we run a free community goldie oldies and Parkinson class. Parkinson’s boxing classes are non-combat workouts, meaning you won’t be fighting another person. Classes typically include exercises that help you improve hand-eye coordination, agility, speed, endurance, and strength.
Special Education Programme - Whakaramemene (leaving no one behind)
We started up a class with a special education group and with great success we are now making more space to have more classes!
Seeing the fitness rates go up , the smiles get bigger , and laughter get louder, why wouldn't we!
We provide a safe space for each individual to come and be themselves and get fit while having fun.
The Saua programme is a youth porgramme for any youth needing support, mentor, discipline and structure. Youth in this programme train every day of the week, and often many end up competing. This provides them a safe place to be afterschool where they can be themselves.

“Just wanted to say how truly grateful and blessed I am to have and know such a fantastic bunch of brothers!!
The outpouring of aroha, tautoko and whakawhanāungatanga today actually caught me by surprise and brought out a few tears of gratitude.
Thank you for having my back, even though I didn't know I needed it.”
