High Performance Academy
To be a top athlete you need to train like one. The High Performance Academy at NZIS is focused on getting students into peak condition ahead of the sporting season.
What does this High Performance Academy involve?
Training doesn’t just start on the field, but with off-field preparation. Students are pushed to the next level of performance. To reach full-potential, students have the opportunity to work one-on-one with tutors and gain a broad set of skills needed to be a professional athlete.
Each session is designed to show a different form of high-end conditioning exercise techniques that the likes of Ma’a Nonu [NZ All Blacks] and Daya Pritchard [NZ Silver Ferns] have experienced when they studied at New Zealand Institute Sports.
Perks of the High Performance Academy
Get ready for weekly team workouts and fitness tests with your team. You will receive free physiotherapy, recovery modalities, nutritional evaluations and financial support for training apparel, nutritional supplements and sporting travel by the academy.
How can you get involved?
We have high expectations of hard work, determination and commitment from our athletes in the High Performance Academy.
To be selected for this academy students must complete a physical try-out to test their current level of competitiveness and attend an interview. Each year we select students at the Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch campuses to enter the High Performance Academy.
