Australian Sailing operates State Sailing Performance Programs (SSPP) in all Australian States together with the assistance of the State Association. In Queensland, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia; the relevant State Institute/Academy of Sport is a significant partner in the program.
The SSPP's provide a key link in the performance pathway from the various club, class & state based underpinning programs to the Australian Sailing Squad & Australian Sailing Team. Each SSPP is led by a Head Coach who works with the program partners, state network coaches, national program coaches & staff, along with sports science & sports medicine staff to support scholarship athletes.
SSPP Scholarships run annually from 1 March to 28 February based on performances in the previous year according to nationally agreed selection guidelines.
