Welcome to the official website of the Auckland Powerlifting Association (APA). The APA is affliated to the New Zealand Powerlifting Federation (NZPF) and the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF)

Our goal is to develop and promote high-standard and enjoyable drug-free powerlifting competitions throughout the Auckland Area. Currently, we are the only drug tested powerlifting affiliated club in Auckland recognised by Drug Free NZ, Sport NZ, NZPF and the IPF.  


It is with regret we acknowledge Darren Neves stepping down from his president position. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Darren for his contribution to the Auckland Powerlifting Association and involvement in growing the sport amongst many competitions including several international events. Darren has been a part of the APA leadership team since 2010 in a variety of roles, and his hard work doesn’t go unnoticed. Darren isn’t leaving the sport and will be around at competitions while supporting the committee. We thank him for the time and effort he has put in.

While, we are sad to see Darren leave his role as president, we are delighted to welcome Evie Corrigan as our new president, and our other new committee members and their positions.
