The Regional Talent Development Program (formerly Regional Academy of Sport program) is an initiative of the Department of Sport and Recreation (DSR) and plays a vital role in the regional sports system by enabling State sporting associations (SSAs) to develop an infrastructure that provides a sequential pathway for talented regional athletes to achieve their potential in sport.
Through the program, SSAs are able to seek funding to initiate and deliver sport development initiatives that match the skill level of their most talented athletes. These initiatives are intended to produce a recognised and systematic approach to assisting talented athletes from regional areas to enter mainstream high performance programs.
The Regional Talent Development program has been operating since March 2000 and has been provided by DSR in response to a demonstrated need for country athletes to overcome many of the social, financial and cultural barriers they confront.
