In 2021, UniSA Sport is running its inaugural Athlete Development Program, a sports training and athletic support program aimed to assist students in the pursuit of sporting and academic excellence. Fifty places will offered within the program, aimed at developing athletes, matching service provision and delivery with student-athlete needs.
What does the Athlete Development Program offer?
The UniSA Sport Athlete Development Program aims to benefit students through unprecedented access to UniSA 's high-level facilities and training environments with the support of our highly qualified staff. Student-led services delivered in strength and conditioning, are tailored to support your current program and sporting coach requirements or an individualised program can be developed. In addition, students will have access to student-led allied health services in the areas of physiotherapy, podiatry and exercise physiology, who will assist in assessing and managing new or existing injuries. We ultimately aim to provide students the training and support not often accessible that is required to become improved athletes and achieve greater results within their chosen sport.
