Performance Enhancement Division
The Western Australian Institute of Sport operates its
dedicated training programs within three linked clusters of sports which
collectively form a Performance Enhancement Division (PED).
Each of the clustered training programs are identified as
Performance Enhancement Teams (PET). The combination of sports within each PET are
strategically aligned in connection to the role that WAIS plays in supporting
the specific sport’s development pathway.
The PET structure promotes a coach led, athlete focused
framework that strives to achieve high performance outcomes by engaging a
connected network of support and service staff, who work collaboratively across
each sport within their respective cluster. Each PET is managed by an individual
Performance Enhancement Team Director.
Under the Performance Enhancement Division model, each Performance
Enhancement Team is provided access to high quality; coaching, medical,
psychology, bio-mechanics, physiology, nutrition, personal excellence and
strength and conditioning services.
The Performance Enhancement Teams are structured by the
- PET - Podium: Athletics and Swimming
- PET - National: Sailing, Canoeing, Water Polo (men’s), Water Polo (women’s) and the
Individual Athlete Support Program (IASP)
- PET - Pathways: Cycling, Rowing, Diving, Hockey (men’s), Hockey (women’s) and
