This is an exciting time for all Surf Sports Athletes. SLSSA have recognised that to provide athletes with the best possible opportunity to perform well and be recognised at a National level, they need support and guidance.
SLSSA have partnered with Flinders University (FU), Flinders One Fitness and South Australian Aquatic and Leisure Centre (SAALC) to design and develop a program aimed at assisting surf sports athletes to be the best they can.
The academy has been designed to achieve several primary objectives, including:
The academy will provide support to enhance not only the athlete’s daily training environment but also include components such as:
This is just the beginning of an exciting journey for all our athletes and we wish them the best in their commitment to the “Academy” and continual personal development.
Acceptance has been based on past performance results, commitment to training and assessment through personal interview to understand individual needs and future goals.
In total 20 athletes have been selected in Tier 1, and 19 athletes in Tier 2.
A list of athletes can be seen in the following table.
The first gathering of all athletes and supporting partners will be held at Moana SLSC on Sunday October 18, 2015 from 1pm. The group will be addressed by SLSSA CEO Clare Harris and Ironman Champion Phil Clayton. They will then join Phil for a short training and mentoring session.
