Athlete Development Program
Silverton’s Athlete Development Program will continue in 2021 for selected students in Grade 5/6. Unfortunately due to the impacts of COVID the number of excursions and special guests visits that were planned for this year didn’t eventuate, but the students who participated still enjoyed the program and their feedback was overwhelming positive.
Thanks to the Victorian Institute of Sport students did hear from a number of Olympians via online Webex and video recordings throughout the year. We now look forward to visiting the VIS facilities in early 2021. Students participated in lessons on Nutrition, Sport Psychology, and different Physical Training Methods and participated in Fitness Testing.
The program’s focus is giving students exposure to high performance sport and education. It is an introduction for students to the opportunities that are available to them, both in athletic or administration career pathways in sport. For more information please refer to the Silverton website
For more information on the program or how to be involved in 2021, please see Mr Blundell.
The students and staff of the Silverton Athlete Development Program would like to thank PermaSafe Asbestos Solutions for their support in 2020.
