    Providing pathways for aspiring athletes


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 at 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.

Each of our Partner Sports has a program manager who works with an advisory panel to formulate a practical program that aims to enhance the athletes coaching and all round development.
