What It Takes To Progress

The WITTP framework identifies the key foundations that underpin long term potential in the Olympic and Paralympic disciplines, across genders and classes detailing technique, physical preparation, psychological characteristics and behaviours along with racing and training experiences. 

Talent development is not a simple, standard, straight line process, each individual is highly unique.  Coaching at the base of the pathway involves working with broad groups of individuals that all have varied and developing needs and facility access. The WITTP frameworks offer a reference point for decision making to help coaches create effective and appropriate learning environments suitable to the needs of their paddlers and the constraints of the environment that they operate within.
