High Performance

The Snow Sports NZ High Performance programme provides a high performance environment that produces athletes who can win medals consistently at the Paralympic Winter Games.

The programme is delivered with the support of High Performance Sport NZ (HPSNZ). Adaptive snow sports is one of HPSNZ’s Targeted Sports and we work closely together to identify athletes tracking towards podium finishes at Paralympic Games to award them carded status.

With carding status our athletes can access performance support like strength and conditioning, nutrition, athlete life advice, performance and technique analysis, physiology, psychology, injury and illness prevention and rehabilitation, and performance planning. Athletes also access financial support through HPSNZ Performance Enhancement Grants (PEGs) by meeting key criteria.

We strongly believe smart planning, solid support and a team approach will take each of our athletes to the next level of their development. The High Performance team currently has their sights firmly set on the Paralympic Winter Games in PyeongChang in 2018.
