Supporting Coaches

Coaching is a great way to express passion for sport and enrich the lives of New Zealanders. It's exciting and satisfying, and helps keep people actively involved in developing others.

Sport NZ supports national and regional sport organisations as well as Regional Sports Trusts with their coaching programmes, developing their coaching leaders and coaching support networks.
