The camp has capacity for up to 40 coaches to attend the event.  We actively encourage coaches to come to the camp alongside their athletes so we can collaborate and share experience that is directly relevant to your athletes and their long term development.
The camp is designed to provide quality small group instruction that will be hyper tailored to each athlete.  The goal is to prepare you for future representative honours and also progression to talent camps and the AASE program.  Small groups are essential to providing this foundation.
The camp is designed for athletes in the U15 , U17 and U20 age groups.
The camp is aimed at athletes with at least 1 to 2 years of training experience within one or more of the throws disciplines.  Ideally you should be competing regularly and you should have some results on Power of 10.
We actively encourage you to come along with your coach. Our goal is to enable you and your coach to grow together and learn together from the collaboration and information sharing at the camp. Whether your coach comes to the camp or not, the learning provided will help you as an athlete work better with your coach and we are happy to share camp outcomes and "work-ons" to all coaches with athletes present.  We don't want to replace your coach but make the outcomes you share with your coach more successful.
Unfortunately, the answer is no.  We want athletes to experience the full range of performance camp activities.  This includes working within a squad environment, casual information sharing as well as building relationships with your fellow athletes that could help you in future representative squads.
Once you have registered and paid through PayPal we will send you out a few documents that will need your attention.  These include a short questionnaire to find out a little more about you and your desired outcomes of the camp, an athlete code of conduct and a welcome pack with details of when to expect the full details on camp logistics and plans.
