“Thank you so much for giving Mitchell the most incredible first season of ‘proper triathlon’. It has been an amazing season for him on so many levels. He has thoroughly enjoyed the coaching sessions. He has made some really lovely friends in the Academy squad (what an awesome group of children you selected!). His triathlon skills have improved immensely. He had one of the best weekends ever at the Academy Games. He has grown in confidence as an athlete.  He wears his Academy uniform with such pride. It has been a very successful season on so many levels. Thank you for giving him this opportunity and allowing him to make the most of it.” 
“Thank you for your program and the delivery of it. It was fantastic from start to finish and saw Oscar organised, enthusiastic and even more passionate about AFL. Oscar’s leadership skills have developed, and it was noted by the PSSA AFL gala coach and I credit this to the program. I was impressed by the education session as well. Your support of me as a parent was also greatly appreciated. I can’t rank the program highly enough.”
“We would like to extend our thanks for the wonderful care and support provided to our daughter leading up to, and including, her participation in the recent Academy Games. Charlize thoroughly enjoyed the training and experience, and the feedback that was given afterwards by the coaches was excellent. It has provided clear direction on what she can continue to work on leading up to Academy training returning.”
