National Sports Organisations
We work in partnership with national sport organisations (NSOs), allocate resources to targeted sports and athlete campaigns, and deliver world-leading support to impact NSO, coach and athlete performance.
We provide investment to targeted sports and also support specific projects with campaign investment.
- Tier 1: Athletics, Cycling, Rowing, Yachting.
- Tier 2: Canoe Sprint, Equestrian, Rugby Sevens (Men and Women), Netball.
- Tier 3: Hockey Women, Snow Sports.
- Targeted Paralympic: Paralympics NZ.
Sports that have received campaign investment include swimming, triathlon, football (women), hockey (men), cricket, rugby league, bowls, squash, softball, surf life saving, canoe slalom, boxing, basketball (men), Olympic weightlifting, gymsports, wrestling, shooting, ice speed skating, beach volleyball and surfing.
National sport organisations undergo an annual performance review process. Investment decisions are based on a four-year Olympic funding cycle with flexibility to make annual adjustments as required. NSOs can apply annually for one or two year campaign investment to support specific campaigns. Investment decisions are typically announced in December each year.
