The Target Talent Program (TTP) is the highest tier of the Academy and is funded and directed by Athletics Australia, via Athletics South Australia. TTP is the early identification element of Athletics Australia's High Performance Department.
The aim of this program is to encourage and develop the best young athletes around the country, by providing them with an opportunity to train with other talented athletes, learn from professionals and to interact with their personal coach and other TTP personal coaches in a training environment.
The TTP squad will cover 8 event groups which include: Vertical Jumps, Throws, Pole Vault, High
Jump, Sprints and Hurdles, Endurance and Walks.
Whilst there will be core components of the TTP, each event group will have their own event leader that will assist Athletics South Australia by coordinating a specific event program, with their own specific aims and outcomes.
Personal coaches are encouraged to engage with the program at every level.
