Athletes to the 2020 WaterPolo Education Program will be selected by invitation.
The Hunter Academy of Sport, working in partnership with Regional Academies of Sport and Water Polo NSW aims to identify, develop and provide pathways to athletes in the Hunter Region. This WaterPolo Education includes performance support including strength and conditioning, nutrition, sports psychology, social media and Education pathway advice. The focus is to develop the athlete holistically with sessions “out of the water” to support long term development.
The Program will provide support services to improve athlete development with a view to:
- Identify talented athletes.
- Enhance opportunities for selection into state squads, entry into WPNSW Programs and higher order athlete pathways through increased athlete exposure to sports science, personal development, and education such as nutrition, psychology, and preparation.
Athlete selection will be performance based and invitations will be sent to identified athletes within the WPNSW State Development Squad pathway.
A program levy will be applicable to successful athletes.
