TAS - High Performance (HP) Training Program

Targeted Athlete Strategy (TAS) is a national program that provides identified Canadian athletes with the individualized support that they need in their development to enhance what the team-based system already provides.

The BC TAS-HP Training Program is designed to provide athletes with a training and development program that is individualized and will maximize their growth as a skilled athlete over the long term. The strategy is based on two fundamental factors of LTAD, periodization and calendar planning, which are used to design a plan for athletes that provides them with the resources they need to ensure they develop holistically as an athlete.

The TAS-HP Training Program is the highest level of the Basketball BC High Performance Program and, when combined with Provincial Team participation, is viewed as a comprehensive Yearly Training Program (YTP). It is part of Canada Basketball's overall Targeted Athlete Strategy (TAS) and is recognized by Canada Basketball as the pathway for inclusion in National Team Age Group participation, including Identification and Assessment camps.

The program is designed for athletes entering Grades 10 -12 in the fall (ages 15 -17 by the end of the year).  Athletes are required to try out for the program, but some athletes may receive a direct invitation based on prior identification or evaluation through provincial and national team participation.  

The primary goal is for athletes to maximize their potential and attain the highest level of achievement possible.
