Snow Australia is pleased to announce the athletes who have been selected to the Emerging Talent Program for 2024.

The ETP has an impressive record of identifying up-and-coming talent, and providing opportunities for young athletes to transition into Institutes Programs or National Development Teams in the future.

The program uses a combination of individual and program support in addition to the athlete’s pathway program activity to deliver outcomes for the individual.

The first in a series of camps will see Park & Pipe Skiers and Snowboarders descend on the National Snowsports Training Centre’s airbag during structured blocks in May, whilst the Moguls ETP athletes will be utilising the water ramp at the Geoff Henke Winter Olympic Training Centre in Brisbane later in the month.

Ben Bond, Snow Australia’s Performance Health & Talent Manager said the athletes named for the 2024 program should be proud of their achievements to date, but also view it as a golden opportunity to take their game to another level.

“We have almost 60 athletes from nearly every Olympic and Paralympic discipline forming the ETP cohort for 2024 which shows the breadth of our Performance Pathway,” said Bond. “A number of these athletes have already had the taste of international competition, with several having represented Australia at the Winter Youth Olympic Games in Korea earlier this year, while others are looking to build on their exposure to the international training and competition scene. 

“Twenty-two of the young athletes named will have 2024 as their first year in ETP. It is such a good opportunity for us to work closely with these athletes, their parents and coaches, and begin to educate them on the sport system and what is takes to progress in snowsport. 

“We held our ETP Induction Webinar on May 8 which was extremely well attended, with everyone really excited for the Season Launch Camp at the National Snowsport Training Centre later this month.”
