Partnership benefits athletes and SLSNZ members

Thursday, 12 December 2019

A partnership with NXT Level Sport & Health will provide sports performance, recovery and first aid medical consumables to Surf Life Saving New Zealand’s High Performance programme.

NXT Level Sport & Health are specialists in sourcing and distributing high quality sports medical, rehabilitation, sports performance and nutritional products.

As a result of the two-year partnership, the High Performance team will receive $6,000+GST of contra, excluding nutritional products and supplements, and a 10% discount off wholesale pricing.

NXT Level Sport & Health Director Joe Ward says the partnership is a fantastic addition to their sponsorship portfolio of elite NZ athletes and teams.

“We are hugely passionate about Surf Lifesaving in New Zealand. We recognise the massive role volunteer Surf Lifeguards play in the safety of the beach going public and the wider community in general.

“We are incredibly proud to support our surf clubs, volunteers, competitors and also the World Champion Black Fins team and the SLSNZ High performance Unit.

“The partnership with SLSNZ is so important to NXT Level Sport & Health and is close to our hearts. We want to make sure we can provide the maximum amount of support to the volunteers, athletes and the surf clubs themselves.”

Mr Ward says NXT Level Sport & Health will be supplying surf athletes with free physiotherapy services on the beach (strapping etc) at some of the major events this summer “so come down and say hi!”.

“We are so excited about partnering with this amazing organisation. See you on the beach,” he says.

Surf Life Saving New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Paul Dalton says the partnership is a great opportunity for the High Performance programme and Surf Life Saving members.

"It's wonderful to have NXT Level Sport & Health on board as a partner of Surf Life Saving and our High Performance programme, especially in the lead-up to the 2020 Lifesaving World Championship.

“We have greatly enjoyed working with Joe Ward and his team over the last four years and their proactive support has made a big difference to our teams’ ability to perform at the highest level," Mr Dalton says.
