Sport New Zealand 2020-2021 Strategic Priorities

In light of the ever changing COVID-19 environment, we have developed a document to outline our single year strategic priorities. This will be our focus for the next 12 months.


Our 2020-21 Strategic Priorities build from our previously announced 2020-24 Strategic Plan, but reflects the new circumstances and our investment responsibilities related to the $265m Recovery Package

We are defining an investment approach to ensure all Sport NZ investment including the $265m Recovery Package is well spent
We will continue to implement critically important programmes including:

  • He Oranga Poutama
  • Women and Girls, and Disability
  • Integrity in Sport 
  • Healthy Active Learning
  • Balance is Better
  • Supporting disadvantaged communities

We will continue to work across areas where Sport NZ can make a significant strategic and systemic impact on play, active recreation and sport in Aotearoa New Zealand
In light of the Recovery Package we will also be required to take on some wider system responsibilities.  We are up for that challenge and will continue to work hard enacting our responsibility as Kaitiaki of the Play, Active Recreation and Sport system of Aotearoa.
