Following the 2012 London Olympic Games, an independent review
recommended that WAIS undertake a structural change to improve coordination
between the ACS and Coaching departments and provide greater accountability to
process and quality of planning.
This culminated in the creation of a Performance Enhancement
Division (PED) consisting of three Performance Enhancement Teams (PET) that split
the 13 WAIS sport programs and IASP athletes into three teams.
Each of the three Performance Enhancement Teams has a performance team of
dedicated service providers focussed on specific clusters of athletes to
increase the collaboration and efficiency of support to the central component,
Each PET is managed by a director overseeing a performance team
consisting of; coaching, medical, psychology, bio-mechanics, physiology,
nutrition, athlete career and education and strength and conditioning.
The three PET groups are clustered as follows:
- Performance Enhancement Team - Invasion Sports: Hockey, Netball, Water Polo
- Performance Enhancement Team - Techinical Sports: Athletics, Diving, Gymnastics, Swimming, Individual Athlete Support
- Performance Enhancement Team - Racing Sports: Canoeing, Cycling, Rowing, Sailing
