See what some of our athletes and managers have to say about our facilities...
Hockey NZ Events Manager Richard Palmer
"I am sending this email to thank you for all your assistance during the recent University of Waikato 4 Nations hockey tournament in Tauranga.
The teams were very impressed with the facilities that you so kindly made available, it made a welcome change from the wheelie bins and blow up pools that they are normally faced with for ice baths! Having the access you provided was also very practical and convenient"
NZ National Women’s Rugby Sevens team captain and Olympic Silver medalist Sarah Goss
“The complex gives me a high-performance training environment where I can train with top equipment and become a better athlete.”
New Zealand Rugby General Manager Neil Sorensen
“The Centre is a fantastic base for the All Blacks Sevens and Black Ferns Sevens teams. It’s a world class facility which has improved the ability for our players to step up to the next level and perform on the international stage. The teams love the space because it has everything we need in one place. We are focusing more of our time at the Centre and building our Sevens base at the Mount.”
Warriors operations manager Daniel Floyd
“The facilities are first class. The centre meets our needs with the gym, recovery pools and meeting rooms all in one place, and with the fields right across the road.”
Black Sticks Men’s Strength and Conditioning Coach Scott Logan
“We first used the facility in 2016, to build up to the Olympic Games. We really enjoyed it and hence the desire to get back. The environment is amazing with the other high-performance teams and athletes all thriving in the space and the environment radiates success.
“The space is very similar to the one we train at on a weekly basis in Auckland, so coming down here allows us to seamlessly get on with our training.”
