Pathway to Podium sailor application

Pathway to Podium (P2P) targets athletes and their coaches who are 8 to 10 years from a podium performance at the highest level in their sport. Each autumn, targeted NSOs select emerging athletes and coaches to join the programme. They are given support in areas such as performance planning, training regimes, mental skills, strength and conditioning, and nutrition.

Yachting New Zealand and HPSNZ are able to offer up to eight additional athlete spots for the HPSNZ Pathway to Podium (P2P) programme in 2019 / 20.
