Elite Sport Initiatives
Through its elite sport structures and initiatives, DIT is committed to providing talented young sportspeople with a supportive environment within which they can develop maximum sporting performance alongside academic excellence. Our continued success in the future as one of the leading lights in High Performance Student Sport is through a closely knit partnership with Sport Ireland Institute to develop and deliver a range of athlete-led support services.
Elite Athlete Support Programme
The Elite Athlete Support Programme is an athlete-led development programme whereby financial assistance and a network of support services are tailored to meet the needs of high performance sportspeople. The value and benefits of each 'package of support' is assessed on an individual basis and ranks support depending on the athletes achievements, potential to develop as an athlete and commitment to represent and promote the Institute.
