The WAIS Program of the Year will be unveiled at the
Institute’s Awards night held at the Pan Pacific in Perth next Thursday,
The Program of the Year celebrates the outstanding work
carried out by the coaching and service staff that underpin the athlete
performances supported by WAIS.
Program Sports at WAIS are clustered into Podium, National
Teams and National Programs. Each Program is coach led and athlete focused and
comes under the guidance of a Team Director, who orchestrates a connected network
of support and service staff, who work collaboratively across each of the
sports within their cluster.
The WAIS Program of the Year is an open category award, with
all 11 WAIS Program Sports eligible. The key criteria in determining the most
outstanding Program is assessed through athlete performance against
expectation, as well as factoring the effectiveness of Program staff in
assisting performance outcomes.
The Program of the Year is presented in recognition of WAIS staff
achievement and stands alongside the WAIS Coach of the Year.
The WAIS Awards also showcase the peak achievements of the
Institute’s athletes, with key awards presented for the Athlete of the Year and
Junior Athlete of the Year.
In 2016, the Men’s Water Polo Program earned the Program of
the Year title.
