QA TTP Overview

The Queensland Athletics Target Talent Program (QA TTP) is a high performance pathway program funded and regulated in partnership with Athletics Australia. It is strongly aligned with activities of the Athletics Australia High Performance Department and has been established to:

  • Act as the early talent identification component of Athletics Australia’s High Performance strategy.

  • Encourage the best young athletes in the State by inviting them to be part of a State level squad and participate in development opportunities.

  • Encourage and develop the best local coaches through recognising them as State Coaches.

  • Create meaningful contact in the off-season between State Coaches and the best young athletes in the State and their personal coaches.

  • Create a National pool of identified coaches in each event group (i.e. State Coaches for Sprints & Hurdles, Endurance & Walks, Jumps, and Throws) who model best practice at the local level.

  • By identifying and engaging Queensland’s best junior athletes and coaches through development opportunities, the QA TTP aims to encourage them to achieve their potential and go on to represent Australia at youth, junior and senior levels.

Selected athletes who meet the inclusion criteria and their personal coaches will be invited to attend QA TTP Squad Days which will incorporate a combination of relevant event group training clinics and both general and event-specific education workshops.
