GOLF AUSTRALIA HIGH PERFORMANCE PROGAM
To create and implement elite athlete preparation platforms and structures which provide the best possible coaching, support service, daily training environment, sports science services and competition opportunities for Australian athletes.
Producing athletes who are capable of winning major championships, Olympic medals and top-100 world ranking positions are the most effective means to boost participation in the game and attract funding to golf in Australia.
GOLF AUSTRALIA HIGH PERFORMANCE PROGRAM
Lead by the state high performance manager, the national program is accountable for identification, selection and the long-term development of athletes within the high-performance program. The state HP programs implement the Golf Australia high performance program curriculum, standards, philosophy and culture.
The state high performance programs collectively form the Golf Australia high performance program. The state high performance program is responsible for case managing each athlete’s daily training environment and long-term development processes.
Golf Australia must have a clear and integrated understanding of how the athlete is developing and how limited funding is being spent. It is also important we have a close relationship with each athlete’s primary coach and key personal as they are part of the athlete’s journey and an integral part of the overall team.
THE GOLF AUSTRALIA HIGH PERFORMANCE PROGRAM PATHWAY
The Golf Australia high performance pathway comprises four tiers. Funding for service provision and development opportunities increase as the athlete moves through the tiers.
Tier 1 – Golf Australia Rookie Program
Tier 2 – State High Performance Program
Tier 3 – State Development Program
Tier 4– State Talent ID Program
