Alumni ACADEMY PROGRAMME

The goal of our Academy Programme is to have more Canterbury athletes and coaches feeding through to High Performance Programmes and representing New Zealand at World Championships and the Paralympic Games.

Those selected in the Academy Programme will receive a funding grant, attend sports education seminars (ie: drug free sport, nutrition, sponsorship), receive assistance with individual sports plans and have their achievements promoted throughout the year.
