Over 50 talented young athletes from the Western Sydney Academy of Sport gathered at Sydney West Sport Medicine’s (SWSM) state of the art facility in Rooty Hill for their Fitness Testing & Functional Movement Screening Day.
Young athletes from across the state will undergo an intensive education program covering everything from the dangers of drugs in sport to financial literacy, thanks to a new scheme funded by the NSW registered club industry to be distributed by the Regional Academies of Sport (RASi).
Training plays a vital part in optimising athletic performance. It must be of adequate volume and high enough quality to not only improve performance, but also to keep the athlete injury free. Over the past few years, scientific research has tried to better understand the relationship between training load and injury.
It is exciting times for the Western Sydney Academy of Sport as they welcome their Official Vocational Education Partner BCA National.
As a highly regarded registered training organisation and consulting company, BCA National offer quality vocational education in a number of areas. Of particular interest to the Academy is BCA National’s focus on providing educational opportunities for aspiring, current and former athletes – through participation in their Sport Development Diploma that is being rolled out in western Sydney.
