UC Athletics Academy
The UC Athletics Academy operates to assist athletes to further their skills, improve techniques, motivations and knowledge in the sport of athletics. Athletics is a foundation sport and at the Academy we recognise this and provide coaches who tailor their programs based on what outcomes and goals are desired to improve your fitness and skills.
The Academy is an athletics development pathway designed for young athletes, to progressively move through the sport of athletics. The pathway will provide opportunities for them to:
- Gain skills in line with their skill level and maturation;
- Move easily from one stage of involvement to another;
- Be motivated and have fun whilst developing their skills and interests;
- Inspire them to stay involved in the sport of athletics, for life; and
- Provide athletes with ongoing support throughout the off-season.
