High Performance Training Centre

The IAAF High Performance Training Centre (HPTC) of the Oceania Region is part of the Development Strategy of IAAF and one of 7 HPTCs around the world. Located on the Gold Coast it is attached to the OAA and is serving 20 Member Federations and 2 Associate Member Federations.

The High Performance Training Centre provides a centre of excellence for the training and development of international class athletes and coaches. The Centre is managed and supervised under IAAF control.

The first HPTC was opened by the IAAF in 1997 and the IAAF currently has seven Centres around the world: in Africa, Asia, NACAC (North America, Central America and Caribbean) and Oceania. Many athletes have benefited from time spent at the HPTC and have improved their performances at world level as a result.

In 2003 the IAAF had selected the Millennium Institute for Sport and Health in Auckland to host the HPTC for the Oceania Area. In 2011 the HPTC was then moved to the Gold Coast.

The athletes at the HPTC Gold Coast receive either short, middle or long term sponsorship from the IAAF or IOC.

The Oceania Athletics Association – High Performance Training Centre offers your athletes the option of  short term placements on the Gold Coast. The HPTC offers excellent living and training conditions for athletes staying at the HPTC and will be happy to welcome you. Please contact Yvonne Mullins, Executive Director, Oceania Athletics Association – yvonne@oceaniaathletics.com for applications and enquiries
