NISA has revised the national squad structure for Performance and Development as from 1st July 2014.
Nick Sellwood, NISA Chief Executive, says: “Following the recent review of the NISA Performance and Development programmes, we are now pleased to announce a new structure that will provide a seamless pathway to enhance the development of our figure skaters from Talent levels through to the UK Sport World Class Programme.
