Support through the individual athlete scholarship program is offered annually to athletes from sports which do not have a Tier 1 program.
Through the partnership between VIS and Shooting Australia the development and engagement of the performance support team has provided a significant contribution to the development and preparation of athletes for benchmark events including the Olympic and Commonwealth Games and ISSF World Championships.
The program plays a key role in supporting SA’s National Coaches to develop, implement and evaluate their individual performance plans for targeted categorised athletes across both Shotgun and Pistol disciplines.
