2015/2016 Triathlon Program
The Western Sydney Academy of Sport implements high performance programs for western Sydney’s talented young athletes across a number of sports.
The Academy is now accepting applications from athletes interested in a scholarship position within the 2015/16 Triathlon Program.
The Western Sydney Academy of Sport is an independent non-profit organisation, incorporated in June 2004. The Academy’s Board of Directors features prominent business, sporting and community representatives.
The role of the Academy is to provide quality development opportunities for talented young athletes living in western Sydney. The Academy’s programs focus on high standards of individual performance, achievement and excellence.
The Academy works in collaboration with the recognised State Sporting Organisations, the NSW Institute of Sport and all levels of sports administration to ensure its programs provide relevant and valuable opportunities within an integrated pathway for our athletes. The Academy’s development programs have established benchmarks in standards and value in the officially recognised development pathway for talented athletes.
Since its establishment, over 1,500 talented young sports people have completed Scholarships with the Academy across a range of nine sports disciplines. The Academy takes considerable pride from the progression of many of its athletes to the more elite levels of sport – examples being:
