2020 Oxygn8 Target Talent Program

The Athletics Victoria Target Talent Program (AVTTP) is a high-performance pathway program funded and regulated in partnership with Athletics Australia (AA) and the Victorian Institute of Sport (VIS). The program is strongly aligned with activities of the Athletics Australia High Performance Department and has been established to:

  • Act as the early talent identification component of Athletics Australia’s High-Performance Department;
  • Encourage the best young athletes in the State by inviting them to be part of a State level squad and participate in development opportunities;
  • Encourage and develop the best local coaches through recognizing them as State Coaches;
  • To create meaningful contacts in the off-season between the best young athletes in the State, their personal coaches and the AVTTP State coaching Team;
  • Create a National pool of identified coaches in each event group (i.e. State Coaches for Sprints & Hurdles, Endurance & Walks, Jumps, and Throws) who model best practice and who are supported by the AA National Junior Coaching Team;
  • By identifying and engaging Victoria’s best junior athletes and coaches through development education opportunities, the AVTTP aims to encourage both athletes and coaches to achieve their potential and to progress through the AA High Performance Pathway, in a fun, encouraging and engaging environment


Please note that due to the current environment with regards to the COVID-19 outbreak, there have been some adjustments to the qualification period, session dates and mode of delivery for the 2020 Athletics Victoria Target Talent Program. Additional information will be sent out to squad members following confirmation of adjustments.
