Athletes are what the Institute is all about. They are the ultimate focus of all our activities at the Institute.
The aim of the Institute is to enhance and refine the environment which influences, supports, and ensures that Ireland's talented athletes will achieve sustained levels of excellence in elite International sport.
In April of 2011 we opened our high performance services centre (HPSC) to athletes, coaches, support staff and sports seeking support. The HPSC is fitted out with an exceptionally high standard of equipment and is staffed by a very experienced team of service providers. The services provided include sports medicine, physiotherapy, physiology, performance analysis, nutrition, strength and conditioning, life-skills and psychology.
The Institute has also taken over the Carding services from Coaching Ireland (formerly the National Coaching and Training Centre; NCTC) redesigning the process of sports science and medicine delivery to athletes.
