Overview

Sunraysia Academy of Sport in partnership AFL Vic Country and AFL Richmond Academy has AFL-vic-country
introduced a Service Delivery Program model to the region for the first time.  The new program offers the athletes with sports science components and personal development at a local level.  The 2017 AFL Program will provide off-Field programs and sessions to complement any on-field training that each athlete is already undergoing with their own coach and Pioneers.  The Academy Program developed is designed to service the needs of the athletes and compliment the training and their competition loads. Each Sunraysia Academy of Sport partner  provides sport specific practical training opportunities for their athletes. These sessions are of an elite standard and will most often be conducted by a specialist coach at either State or National level. A new initiative to compliment the Strength & Conditioning component is a partnership with Mildura Dance International coach, where the Footballers will complete a six week program focusing on agility, pivot & flexibility.

The Academy is proudly supported Academy-Logo-1by WorkSafe AFL Victoria Country and AFL Richmond Academy.   Each of our Partner Sports has a Sports Liaison Officer who works with the Academies Executive Officer to formulate a practical program that aims to enhance the athletes coaching and all round development.
