OWNZ Talent Identification Program
The “TI” program has been established to create a pathway to present the sport of Olympic Weightlifting to Schools.This program provides exposure for the sport to students who may otherwise never have thought of Olympic Weightlifting as a potential sport to participate in.

It’s a starting point to link Clubs and Schools and/or fosters current Club-School relationships.

OWNZ wants to build incentives for Clubs to create a link with local Secondary Schools, so we have designed the “TI” Program to increase the exposure of our sport to school aged kids.

There are also two ZKC Weight sets up for grabs! One for the South Island Club and one for the North Island Club that gets the most students through the Program and on record. 

Club Managers please stay tuned for more information on our Talent ID Program being sent out to you shortly!

FEBRUARY 2015

OWNZ Appoints a Part-Time Administrator

Dear OWNZ Members, Officials, Coaches, Clubs and Supporters,

I would like to introduce myself formally as I take on this position.

My involvement with Olympic Weightlifting started in 2013 when I began competing in Club Competitions in the Wellington Region. I am still competing but have now relocated to the Auckland Region.

In 2014 my volunteer involvement within the sport increased when I managed and coordinate the 2014 North Island Championships in Wellington. From then on I knew that I wanted to become more involved to help grow, develop and promote the sport.

One of my key responsibilities in this new role is to be the contact between Members, Coaches, Officials, Clubs and the OWNZ Executive Committee. My contact information is below and I ask that ALL enquiries come through here rather than contacting the board members individually.

We expect the growth of our sport to rise dramatically over the next few years as the quality and support from OWNZ directly to Members, Coaches, Officials and Clubs increases.

To send us in the right direction we have created an online survey for anyone associated with OWNZ to fill out. It is called the 2015 OWNZ Feedback and Future Planning Survey and It wont take you long to complete. The link is below in the newsletter.

I am looking forward to working with every level of the sport from grass-roots through to our Clubs around NZ, through to our High Performance athletes.

Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions, comments or concerns.

Kind Regards,

Emma Pilkington
