New Zealand Girevoy Sport Alliance
NZGSA is affiliated to the International Union of Kettlebell Lifting (IUKL). This is a huge step for New Zealand and one that we hope like minded gireviks in our country will embrace.
This sport has started to grow fast in the west over the last 5-10 years and this has brought with it many issues. Private organisations have competed for a small market and often to the detriment of the sport itself. It is heartening to see this trend begin to change and we intend to be a part of the new evolution of the sport.
NZGSA is affiliated with the IUKL, but we welcome athletes and coaches from all organisations. We are all in this together. In a country our size we cannot afford to operate in separate factions and we believe a unified organisation is the best way to grow the sport, right from the beginning.
