Work in partnership to deliver a high performance system that enables our athletes to excel on the world stage
HPSNZ works together with National Sporting Organisations (NSOs) to enable and empower world class performances that inspire New Zealanders.
To ensure repeatable success for New Zealand on the world stage, we target specific sports and campaigns. We focus on the performance pathways, wellbeing and engagement and funding and investment for those sports.
In the daily training environment, we place carefully chosen teams of experts around elite athletes and coaches, and through a holistic and collaborative approach with NSOs, provide the additional resources, knowledge and inspiration needed to enhance their world-beating capability.
Strategic Priority #1
Greatly enhanced performance pathways for athletes and coaches delivering an accessible national performance network (national performance hubs and regional performance pods) for the development of future talent, while providing our elite athletes and coaches with the support they need to become world class.
Strategic Priority #2
Wellbeing and Engagement
Enriching performance environments that empower and support individuals to reach their potential and enhance their ability to thrive in their sporting and non-sporting lives.
Strategic Priority #3
Funding and Investment
An expanded and more agile funding and investment framework, enabling investment in more sports through an Aspirational Fund, more athletes to be identified earlier and more communities engaged and inspired by New Zealand’s success.
The Sports We Work With
Our targeted approach supports both targeted and campaign sports. It’s a balanced portfolio that’s wide enough to ensure we have enough medal opportunities, and narrow enough to impact performance and increase the chances of repeatable success.
To achieve this, we work in partnership and collaboration with the following targeted national sports organisations:
We also work closely with the following campaign sports:
- Beach Volleyball
- Canoe Slalom
- E Sports
- Ice Sports (speedskating)
- Olympic Weightlifting
