Fostering excellence in sports and exercise through evidence-based practice.

Upcoming Events

SESNZ is pleased to announce that after our successful joint Conference in 2023 we’re doing it all again!  This time we take great pleasure in joining forces with ISPAS (International Society of Performance Analysis of Sport) which will take place from the 20th to 22nd  of November 2024 in Ōtepoti Dunedin where we will again bring together leading experts, practitioners and researchers to share their knowledge and insights. This promises to be a big event so get ready, and let’s get back to Dunedin!

(Updates will be posted as soon as they come to hand so at this stage save the date!)


SESNZ is proud to partner with AUT Millennium for the 2024 November 13th-15th Strength and Conditioning Conference.   This eventfollows on from the collaboration established at the inaugural SESNZ-AUT Practitioner Day held at the NZCIS (Wellington) on November 27th, 2023. 

Each year S & C Coaches and wider High Performance practitioners now have an annual professional development opportunity here in New Zealand.
