What is the Target Talent Program?
The TTP is a development program aimed at athletes who have achieved a Top 6 standard at National Junior Championship events between the age groups of U14 and U20.
Purpose of the program
The key purpose is to identify and assist in developing talented, emerging athletes aged 13-19, with the potential and motivation to attain National representative standards.
AT and the TIS are committed to support these athletes and their coaches along a pathway that provides appropriate development to a career in Track and Field.
