Operation Gold Performance Programme

2018 Athlete Carding Scheme


Athletics Ireland will manage and administer the athlete carding scheme for all levels of carding. The carding scheme is a 'selection process' whereby athletes must achieve performance criteria laid out within a Selection Policy to be considered for membership to the carding programme.

The carding scheme outlines Athletics Ireland's High Performance carding support programme known as the Operation Gold Performance Programme or 'OGPP'. The OGPP document outlines the programme support structures, selection process and policy, the selection panel, appeals process, and how athletes will be considered for carding at the various levels of the programme.
