High Performance

Key HP Information

Our vision:

“A world class high performance program
executed through a collaborative partner approach
demonstrated by national teams achieving sustained success.”

The Water Polo Australia High Performance Program is designed to build depth in the National Team Program, strengthen the high performance delivery network and result in sustainable podium performances in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 and beyond.

In partnership with the Australia Sports Commission, AIS and SIS/SAS, the high performance program across men, women, senior, juniors and youth national squad athletes, is delivered through a decentralised model whereby the athlete’s daily training environment is in their home state or territory, State Academy and Institute Network.
