There has been a lot of changes being made to the area of High Performance Management in Australian Orienteering in 2013.
In January all elite orienteers were encouraged to complete an Athlete Profile outlining their competition schedule for 2013 and their goals for 2013 and beyond.This was followed by providing all elites with the opportunity to complete an Athlete Survey online concerning the organisation, structure, and planning within the HP area.
A new Strategic Plan and Operational Plan are currently being finalised. The main focus of this review of HP has been on developing a High Performance Pathway which is aligned to the ASC FTEM framework for whole of sport pathway continuum.
In recognition that communication is a key part of any change a meeting is being planned for Saturday 28th Septemebr at Canberra Grammar School at approx. 2:00pm after the Aus Sprint Championships. This will be an opportunity for all elites to be informed about
1. The FTEM pathways and how it relates to orienteering.
2. Talent Development Structure for HP– squad structure for 2014 and beyond and the application process.
3. Training camps- Tasmania Jan 2nd-7th, Canberra Jan 23rd-27th.
4. Competition Structure 2014.
