Performance Pathways

Performance Pathways

Mission:  To drive world-leading Olympic and Paralympic Performance Pathways that ensure sustained success at future Games.

The Performance Pathways Team is a collaboration between UK Sport and the English Institute of Sport (EIS). It supports World Class Programmes to identify and develop talented athletes and the construction of the underpinning support systems.

The work of the Performance Pathways Team focuses on supporting sports to improve their systems of performance development through the following four work areas:

  1. Pathway Frontline Technical Solutions: In partnership with sports, the Performance Pathway team deliver tailored solutions to identify and develop talented athletes to help build a sustainable system i.e. talent recruitment and confirmation programmes, talent transfer and development curriculums.
  2. Pathway Education: Provide educational opportunities for development coaches and managers covering an array of topics unique to the elite developing athlete.
  3. Pathway Analytics: Enable sports to robustly measure and benchmark the effectiveness of their performance pathway using specialist diagnostic tools i.e. Pathway Health Check.
  4. Pathway Strategy: Assist sports to develop and implement an aligned pathway vision and strategy from Podium Foundations level to Podium level.

As part of the frontline solutions area, the Performance Pathways Team have worked in partnership with 20 Olympic and Paralympic sports and over 100 World Class coaches; run 12 National athlete recruitment campaigns, and assessed over 7000 athletes.

These projects have resulted in over 100 newly identified athletes entering the World Class system across 17 sports with over 450 international appearances made and over 150 international medals won. Several of these athletes were selected to represent Great Britain at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games and 2014 Nanjing Youth Olympic Games.
