NSWISA Alan Blinn & Simone Moore Memorial Fund

The Alan Blinn and Simone Moore Memorial Fund was established by NSWISA to honour two of our Administrators and Officials who lost their lives on Sydney Harbour on 28th March 2007. Both Alan and Simone shared a passion for skating and contributed hugely not only to skating in Australia but to skating around the world. Alan was an International Judge and President of NSWISA. Simone, an ISU Championship Judge and International Referee, had been newly appointed to the NSWISA Council. Their legacy will assist future generations of aspiring skaters to further develop their talent and achieve their full potential so that they may realise their skating dreams.

NSWISA Long Term Athlete Development Program

NSWISA strongly believes in supporting the development of our athletes across all levels. We are excited to announce the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Program, which will be introduced in stages. The Program is designed to assist athletes and their support teams by providing information and guidelines to assist in their long term development and to recognise their achievements along the way. The LTAD model is used across many sports worldwide as a guideline for athlete development. The ages included are a guideline for the ideal pathway to reach the ‘Compete to Win’ and ‘Live to Compete’ levels of competitive figure skating. Having said that, the individual’s commitment to training and their individual ability to develop the skills will greatly impact how they progress through pathways.

Each athlete has their own goals and in such a highly technical and demanding sport not every athlete will progress through all stages. What is important is that each athlete has the opportunity to become the very best that they can be and learn important life skills along the way.

Further to this model is the skate for life component. Supporting participants who are starting at a more advanced age and those who want to remain in the sport after they have finished their competitive careers by becoming Officials (such as Judges or Technical Specialists) and being a part of our important volunteer community whether at a Club, State, National or International level.

The first components of the LTAD program are the ‘Future is Ours’ Development Squads and the High Performance Squad. The tiered squads are based on age and skill development, with the goal being to assist these skaters to reach their full potential.

The journey of a competitive athlete and their support team is not a quick one. It can take up to 10 years or longer to reach the top. To represent Australia at the Junior Level a skater must be 13 years of age as of 1st July of the International Skating Union’s Competitive year, for Seniors it is currently 15 years of age with the International Skating Union increasing that age in the coming years.

Being a part of any squad is a huge achievement and one our athletes should be proud of.

The Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Program document will provide you with more information about the program including the various squads that will be its focus.

The criteria for inclusion in each squad are outlined for skaters to understand where they fit in the program and what to strive for to move up throughout the squads.

To try out for the LTAD squad please see the information in the LTAD Flyer.
