All the selected athletes have undergone the complete process facilitated by the high-performance staff with an overview of what the institution will be offering at an advanced level.
This was facilitated by the Solomon Island National Institution of Sports (SINIS) High Performance staffs.
A statement from the SINIS said that during the induction, the athletes showed through an athlete pledge which will reflect their dedication to a higher performance system, followed by the signing of the code of conduct and anti doping.

Meanwhile, the SINS-HP induction program aims to complement and add value to athletes and coaches with a plan to help develop a broad range of skills, abilities and behaviours needed for success.
