HPSNZ works in partnership with a number national sporting organisations (NSOs), falling into one of two categories in our Targeted Investment Framework - Podium Sports and Aspirational Sports.
Podium sports have recent history of podium performances at pinnacle events, and a high likelihood of podium performances at future pinnacle events. We work closely with the following podium sports:
Aspirational Sports show potential to deliver podium performances now or in the future, or the potential to inspire New Zealanders with their performances.
Aspirational Sports can have a sole campaign focus for an upcoming pinnacle event for an athlete, athletes or team [Focussed Campaigning] or they can be sports showing potential for sustained performance and inspiration in future [HP Sport Building].
We also work closely with the following aspirational sports:
- Beach Volleyball
- Canoe Slalom
- E Sports
- Ice Sports (speedskating)
- Olympic Weightlifting
- Rugby League
- Surf Life Saving
- Water Polo
