In 2016, the Para-athletics Junior Program will be holding two training camps in the first half of the year. The first camp will take place for our ‘Performance Squad’ at the AIS from 14th-17th April. The group for this camp has already been selected, and information on this can be found here.
The second camp will be for a new ‘Development Squad’ of para-athletes, and will take place at the AIS from 12th-15th May, running in line with the able-bodied under 17 camp. Para-athletes must be between 14-18 years of age to qualify (i.e. born in years 2002, 2001, 2000, 1999, 1998), and they must nominate alongside their personal coaches (in line with the able-bodied under 17 program) at this link (*please note that nominations will close on Monday 21st March);
In conjunction with encouraging state para-athletes to nominate for this, Amy Hibbert from Para-athletics Junior High Performance Coordinator for Athletics Australia is requesting any feedback on para-athletes that our members have been working within their TTP programs that fit the above criteria.
You can contact Amy by email or phone (03) 8646 4569 before Friday the 18th of March.
