Time 2 Train is a kaupapa Māori initiative established in 2015.  Our kaupapa draws on Mātauranga Māori, reconnecting whānau with our natural environment and the traditional and customary practices that sit alongside.  We use multisport that incorporated taonga tākaro as the vehicle to empower whānau to engage, participate, grow, learn and succeed.

Time 2 Train / Mātātoa aim to strengthen whānau engagement by providing learning opportunities of Te Ao Māori traditional practices and teachings through a range of activations that are centred around our core values. 

Time 2 Train also operate primarily under the guidance of our values, kaupapa, and tikanga which guide decision making and define what our business stands for.

Time 2 Train has created a culture that embodies our core values and has ingrained them in all aspects of the organisation. They remind us that our achievements are typically the result of a collaborative effort and that they also protect, preserve and enrich those things that we have inherited from generations past.
