Since the establishment of the HPC, Fiji’s performance at the regional level has dropped considerably, while at the international arena, Rugby 7’s a non-Olympic Sport until 2016, has outperformed any other sport in the history of FASANOC, while putting Fiji on the map in the process.
Put into perspective, FASANOC invests large sums of money every year in athlete and coach development. In the absence of a formal scorecard system to monitor and evaluate the outcomes of high performance athletes in training and in competition, it is difficult to ascertain appropriate levels of financial assistance and still more difficult to ascertain returns on investment.
High Performance programmes that focus on the technological advances for athlete monitoring, advanced principles of strength and conditioning, adaptation, performance and injury, data analysis techniques that have the ability to collect and accurately interpret competition and training information, can no longer be ignored in this day and age where sports is recognized as a formal industry which impacts on the economic development of the country.
Through the HPC FASANOC has plans to deliver this and more, to enable a win-win outcome for both the athlete and FASANOC.
The overall aim of the HPC is to promote a culture of high-performance excellence for Fiji athletes and coaches. This is supported by three key objectives:
Secretary (NOC staff Football & Athletics reps)
Education Commission, ONOC OSEP Rep
Athletes Commission rep, Gymnastics Development Officer
AC rep, Olympian
USP Sports Science Psychological
HP Coach, S&C Analysist
