Welcome to Sport New Zealand

Sport NZ’s purpose is to contribute to the wellbeing of everybody in Aotearoa New Zealand by leading an enriching and inspiring play, active recreation and sport system. Our vision is simple, Every Body Active.

Who we are and what we do

#ITSMYMOVE

Young women face challenges participating in sport and recreation in Aotearoa New Zealand. Factors like time pressure and lack of confidence mean they gradually participate less and drop out of structured activity at a faster rate than young men. So how do we support them in leading healthy, active lives? It starts by understanding what matters to them.
