Athletics Wellington has been working with a range of partners to develop and enhance an athlete development programme to foster talent to higher levels. Performance is one measure of talent, but we are looking at other aspects that help ensure talent is realised.  This includes:-

1.       A Muscle Movement Screen to determine the level of physical literacy of the athlete

2.       A self-assessment competency using the card sort based upon Mental Skills, Team / Character, Life Balance / Well Being / Discipline Specific (Please note, not everyone will be assessed at the same levels)

3.       Current Performance Levels

Over the summer months Athletics Wellington has developed the “Athletics Wellington Performance Pathways” document (Click Here ) to help guide coaches and athletes in the Wellington Region with athlete development.  We suggest you take a read of this document, which has received backing from International, National  and Regionally recognised coaches. 

As a result, we are excited to offer a programme that will be delivered across specific performance development areas for the remainder of the year.  These include:-

  • Support with developing or enhancing your Performance Plans or IPP’s – develop key performance components and measures for each athlete, areas include mental skills, life skills, physical and technical attributes.
  • Muscle Movement Screening to determine the level of physical literacy of the athlete.
  • Strength and Conditioning Programme – develop programmes for each athlete based on their individual performance plans or supporting your coach in this area depending on what is the best outcome for the athlete.
  • Attend workshops on Nutrition, Athlete Life and Sports Psychology.
  • Attend a training camp or camps - athletes attend a specialist camp(s) outside the region or specialist coaches come to Wellington to facilitate a camp(s). Athletes are expected to attend the Camp(s).
  • Meet with the Performance Manager as required to discuss where you are at.
  • A Coaching Conference will be held which we would like your coach to attend. The athlete can also attend as well.
