High Performance Squad Candidates Announced

One of OWNZ strategic initiatives is to put more structure and planning into High Performance. While a framework was developed several years ago that has been used to identify talent we have now taken the next step in naming candidates for selections into two High Performance Squads.

For more information on the creation of our HP squads, commitments required from both OWNZ and squad members then please visit our webpage HERE.

Congratulations to all the athletes named as candidates; their coaches and families.
