UTSNZ Values & Policy

Our Core Values

UTSNZ is guided by the following six core beliefs:


As an organisation our core focus is around reviving competitive inter university / tertiary sporting events in New Zealand, lifting the standard of these competitions and developing pathways to international sporting opportunities. 


We believe as many students as possible should have the opportunity to challenge and better themselves through their chosen sporting endeavour. Our role is to foster this aspiration and help facilitate opportunities for its realisation on a national and international level. 


It is our belief that effort rarely goes unrewarded. We believe in working hard towards a goal and as such are firm advocates for high standards of etiquette, clean competition and fair play.  


We believe in celebrating success. We believe that when we do well we are not just doing so for ourselves, but we are also representing our wider community, our universities, polytechnics, friends and family. 


We believe that dreams are fragile and hard won. In striving for success at an international level we extend the possibility of dreaming to the next generation. 


We believe that no sport is an island and that no venture can truly succeed without the support of many partners. Our whole structure is built around collaboration and partnership to ensure long term sustainability.
