The BSA places a strong emphasis on holistic development and provides a comprehensive wellbeing and Sports Psychology service to athletes. This is done through a series of education workshops, small group workshops and one on one consults with one of the BSA’s wellbeing/Sports Psychology team. When speaking about wellbeing there are a range of different factors that can impact on athletic performance, as well as our every day health and wellbeing. Sleep, stress, diet, exercise and mindfulness are just some of the topics we will look at within our wellbeing workshops to ensure you are functioning at your best.
Each BSA partner sport provides sport specific practical training opportunities for their athletes. These sessions are of an elite standard and will most often be conducted by a specialist coach of either State or National level.
The format for each sport’s practical program will be developed to service the needs of the athletes and compliment the training and competition loads.
The aim of the BSA Strength and Conditioning (S&C) program is to educate athletes on the importance of S&C as both a performance enhancing and injury prevention measure.
Each partner sport is allocated a set S&C schedule. Sessions address the components of fitness specific to that sport and take into consideration the development level of the athlete, current training load and competition period of that sport.
The Athlete Education Program provides personal and sporting development opportunities to athletes through a series of workshops relevant to the holistic development of highly talented athletes.
The aim of the program is to assist athletes in achieving their full potential through the education and practical application of balance in sport and life. The BSA places a strong emphasis on utilising the highly knowledgeable and experienced pool of expert presenters that exist within the Barwon Region.
