National High Performance 2013 -2014 *new*
As a part of the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) “Winning Edge Strategy” each sport which currently receives high performance funding was asked to make a submission to them for future funding. The announcement of the “winning edge strategy” was made in December last year with a deadline for submission on the 1st of February.
SLSA submitted an application and made a presentation to the ASC in February. Decisions on funding will be made by the ASC in March.
Unrelated to the ASC funding submission SLSA has been in the process of reviewing the World Championships, international tours and the High Performance Program. This is a routinely done process to ensure that we are delivering the best possible program for athletes, team management and external stakeholders.
SLSA will be able to confirm our position for the National High Performance Program and international tours for 2013 – 2014 once we have received word from the ASC on our position with regards to funding.
In 2013 – 2014 the tours and squads which are being considered (not confirmed as yet) include but are not limited to the following:
· National High Performance (Elite and Development)
· International Surf Rescue Challenge (Sanyo Bussan) – Japan
· German Cup
· New Zealand Pool Rescue
· Rescue 2014 – France Montpellier
Please stay tuned for further information.
