Balance is Better is an evidence-based philosophy, developed by Sport New Zealand with the New Zealand sport system, to support quality sport experiences for all young people –  regardless of their ability, needs and motivations. It is about young people staying involved in sport for life and realising their potential at the right time.
In 2021, Gymnastics NZ signed a commitment to embed the Balance is Better philosophy into gymnastics in New Zealand. Since then, Gymnastics NZ has been working with gymnastics clubs, participants and parents to understand and celebrate what our community does that already aligns with the principles of Balance is Better, as well as develop and grow our sport to ensure it continues to meet the needs of all participants.
