In partnership with Swimming Tasmania and Swimming Australia, the TIS supports the Swimming Tasmania Development Program.
To identify and develop talented Tasmanian swimming athletes demonstrating potential for selection in Swimming Australia’s high performance programs.
The Swimming Tasmania Development Program forms part of Swimming Australia’s Athlete Development Pathway. The program is overseen for Tasmania by the State Technical Director on behalf of Swimming Australia. The program aims to provide high performance opportunities to identified Tasmanian swimming athletes demonstrating potential for selection in National Teams.
TIS support has three components:
- State Flippers Squad (and where applicable National Flippers) programmed activities
- Targeted support to identified athletes considered 12 months off meeting the selection standard for National Juniors or SAL Para-Swimming Development Program
- Individualised Scholarship to athletes attaining National Juniors or SAL Para-Swimming Development Program and above
Scholarship support will be provided to athletes who meet the selection standard, which is the National Juniors or SAL Para-Swimming Development Program. The process of scholarship support will occur automatically - with the TIS being advised of eligible athletes upon their selection.
1 May to 30 April.
