World Para Ice Hockey is requesting input from athletes, coaches, managers and high-performance staff for the implementation of the High Performance and Development (HPD) framework for the sport.
The HPD framework will outline the Para athlete pathway and enable Word Para Ice Hockey to review, plan and better support members and athletes.
World Para Ice Hockey is inviting these key stakeholders and experts to take part in a survey and provide input and recommendations into the framework.
You can access the survey through this page.
The stakeholders’ groups include athletes who have taken part in international competitions such as the Paralympic Games and the World Championships A-Pool, B-Pool and C-Pool. Female Para ice hockey players who have taken part in the International Women’s Cup and development projects are also invited to participate.
The survey is also open to National Paralympic Committees (NPCs), National Federations (NFs) and Local Organising Committees (LOCs) administrators, managers and support staff, as well as World Para Ice Hockey classifiers, technical officials and volunteers.
The results will be shared with World Para Ice Hockey members later this year.
WPIH will be applying the internationally recognised Foundations, Talent, Elite, Mastery (FTEM) model to develop the athlete development pathway. For more information, please see the FTEM Framework Overview or watch the Introduction to FTEM framework video here.
