High Performance program seeking athlete’s EOI to form Athlete Advisory Group
Honiara, 6th January 2022 – Solomon Islands National Institute of Sport (SINIS) High Performance program is establishing an Athlete Advisory Group. The initiative is an engagement opportunity providing athletes with a voice towards aspects of the country’s HP system delivery.
The is a collective effort to truly understand the diverse opinions, building trust, and how best the High-Performance program can support, involve athletes views and everyone to contribute to the best outcome for all athletes.
The Athlete Advisory Group will inform specific areas of SINIS High Performance’s strategic direction and policy development related to the program to directly meet the needs of athletes and be effective and sustainable now and in the future.
SINIS High Performance Executive Director Aaron Alsop stated that it’s another great step forward in the empowerment of our athletes, establishing a means of seeking athletes’ opinions on issues of major importance dealing with sports through a select group that accurately represent all sportsmen and women
“We are excited to be offering this opportunity for athletes to have a meaningful and important role providing a strategic edge to our HP programs and services. Too often, the athlete’s voice is not taken into consideration on how sport programs are developed and delivered. We have often found that they can present very useful insight to the challenges facing athletes today which is critical to ensure we understand how best to serve their needs as we all prepare for the Sol2023 Pacific Games. We look forward to working with them in this process and encourage anyone who meets the criteria to apply.”
To apply athletes will fill up an Expression of Interest Form to be hand-delivered at SINIS High Performance office, Ranadi or online [email protected] by Monday 17th January 2022
Note that ONLY athletes who have represented the Solomon Islands in the past 3 years may apply and MUST be more than eighteen (18) years of age. Male and female athletes are encouraged to apply, as well as parasport athletes. The Athlete Advisory Group will be made up of a total of twenty (20) athletes, with equal male and female ratio.
