An Elite Development Program (EDP) run in conjunction with Australian Sailing.
The TIS Supports Tasmania’s best sailors with support via strength and conditioning, nutrition, sport psychology and Personal Excellence services. Athletes also undergo protocol testing based on Yachting Australia’s series of tests. The program aims to develop athletes to progress to Yachting Australia’s National Development Squad.
Richard Scarr from Australian Sailing is the program coordinator.
Athletes must be sailing in Olympic class categories and be a member of Yachting Tasmania’s Sailing Academy to be considered for a scholarship. Scholarships are determined based upon performances at National and Youth National Championships.
All EDPs are run from 1 March to 28 February each year.
