High Performance Planning

Our High Performance Planning (HPP) team is responsible for the systematic management of athlete development, according to their programme objectives.

Periodisation Programme

A key element of the High Performance Sports system is the periodisation programme, which drives training and competition profiles over a four-year Olympic cycle. These training cycles take into consideration the interphases between an athlete’s peak performance and recovery periods to achieve their optimal performance at the right time, without the consequences of overtraining.

In order to ensure that it remains a holistic system to develop athletes for podium success, other elements of athlete development are integrated into the periodisation programme, such as: 

  • Performance tracking
  • Sports science and medicine intervention
  • Education and career planning

Our team also act as system managers during this process to ensure the best outcome for our athletes.

Sports Excellence Scholarship (spexScholarship)

The Sports Excellence Scholarship (spexScholarship) provides an enhanced level of support for athletes within the High Performance Sports (HPS) pathway.

spexScholarship includes both financial and programmatic support to prepare athletes to excel at the Major Games. In addition to developing athletes’ sporting potential, the spexScholarship will also assist athletes in their education, career, and personal development.
