Golf Australia is pleased to announce recent improvements in its high performance program.
The high performance route of Golf Australia consists of four levels. Financing for services and development opportunities increases as the athlete goes through the levels.
The levels are:
Level 1 – Rookie program from Golf Australia (professionals only)
Level 2 – High-quality program # of the government
Level 3 – State Development Program & # 39; s
Tier 4 – Staatstal ID program & # 39; s
The following criteria are used for the selection of programs & # 39; s:
> Australian citizen
> All high-performance Golf Australia training athletes must have completed high school – or are completing them
> Results (state, national, international)
> Dedication to the process to achieve their full potential on and off the golf course
> Potential to achieve the long-term strategic long-term objectives of Golf Australia
Golf Australia has a selection process for athletes in Queensland, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory. These states (and territories) are covered by the newly aligned selection process for the GA program with high performance. All selected athletes will be named at the beginning of March, with the national program starting on 1 April and ending on 31 December. The high performance programs of New South Wales and Western Australia are currently not managed by Golf Australia; Contact the appropriate government agency for specific details of each program.
Selection for the high performance program of Golf Australia is independent of the representation of national and national teams.
Athletes who strive to become part of the high performance program of Golf Australia can now submit an application via this link and then by clicking on the relevant state.
Applications are now open to Tiers 2 and 3 of the Gulf Australia high performance program. State programs, such as the Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS) and the Victorian Institute of Sport (VIS), fall under the national Tier 2 program. These programs are considered the elite amateur programs of their respective states.
Removal of benchmark athlete from Golf Australia
As part of the improvements to the Gulf Australia high performance program, benchmark athlete criteria and funding will no longer be continued. For those athletes who met the criteria in the past 12 months, funding will continue to exist. Funding allocated to the benchmark criteria has not been removed, but will be reassigned and invested in athletes through their HP program or through targeted funding (see below). All Australian athletes, regardless of whether they are part of the Golf Australia program, are eligible for targeted financing.
What is targeted financing?
Targeted financing is extra money provided to athletes looking for long-term strategic long-term goals for Golf Australia. It can be a supplement to what athletes receive from their high-performance programs, but can apply to those who train outside such programs. To receive targeted financing:
* athletes in an existing state HP programs are encouraged to consult with their respective national HP managers or to be identified for targeted financing.
* Athletes whose daily training environment falls outside the home country's high performance program – including those in the NCAA / US college system – are eligible for targeted funding, provided their development is monitored by their respective national HP program manager. Two-way contact between the athlete and the HP manager of the state is essential and encouraged.
Targeted financing can be applied to development and tournament opportunities, both at home and abroad.
