High Performance Program

Setting the Standard in Elite Player Development


Basketball Queensland’s High Performance Program (HPP) is a three-tier system engineered to identify, develop and foster the skills of young athletes who aspire to compete at the national and international levels of basketball. The HPP provides ongoing support to existing state and national representative players, and places focus on coach development and support.

Under the basketball training and development program, athletes have access to some of the most experienced coaches and sports scientists in the country as well as state-of-the-art facilities and resources, provided by Basketball Queensland, Basketball Australia, the Queensland Academy of Sport through the Queensland Government and the Basketball Australia Centre of Excellence at the Australian Institute of Sport.

The HPP sets the standard in elite player development, with Basketball Australia encouraging other states to adopt the Queensland model.

Coach development runs parallel to the player development, ensuring that coaches can develop and progress through a similar pathway to athletes. It also ensures that there are enough quality coaches to staff the program, and at the top end, the best athletes are being coached by the best coaches.

The HPP is underpinned by community basketball programs designed to support stakeholders, allowing them to provide quality service to their many athletes and coaches, in turn driving more players and coaches into the High-Performance pathway.

Basketball Queensland’s player pathway is designed to provide an integrated and streamlined pathway to representative and professional basketball under national and international frameworks.
