Our Partners

Sport New Zealand invests in selected organisations and programmes that help us achieve our mission of creating a sport and recreation environment where more New Zealanders participate, support and win.


New Governance section

Effective governance is as important for sport and recreation organisations as it is for all businesses. Our new governance area includes the Nine Steps to Effective Governance (third edition) and supporting material, women in sport governance resources, and more.
