Long term athlete development

We have a structured long term athlete development plan to ensure that our athletes are nurtured through each stage of their development within the Club and those with an emerging talent are guided towards joining the ranks of the high performing DSD athletes.

Our High Performance Program

Our High Performance program has been developed to help the Club’s high performing athletes achieve far-reaching athletic goals and attain their full potential.  This program also allows us to quickly identify and then guide the Club’s emerging talent along a path to a successful transition from Junior to Senior athletics. 

Talent, grit and coaching

DSD has seen members enjoy many successes on the national and international stages.  But this success doesn't just happen.  It comes from a combination of the natural talent of athletes, the determination to push themselves very hard, and smart coaching - a technical expertise imbued with a good dose of experience-laden wisdom.
