Performance Potential Squad (PPS)
The Performance Potential Squad (PPS) is a key Athletics New Zealand pre-carding program that works closely with its members to optimise the development of athletes with the potential to perform and achieve international podium results. The aim of the PPS is to better prepare athletes for high performance success.
To be considered for nomination into the PPS; athletes must demonstrate sufficient abilities and behaviours across the four fundamental elements and show sufficient potential to be able to enter the carding system within 1-3 years; coaches must demonstrate their ability to collaborate and support HP and HPAD strategic priorities.
Consideration for nomination into the PPS will be twice yearly, pre and post the domestic season. Nominations for the PPS will be made by Athletics NZ staff, coaches and key athletics stakeholders.
The PPS will provide a mix of program and individualised support and provide opportunities to assist with the development of an athletes identified needs; and confirm if an athlete is prepared to enter the high performance environment and become carded.
