About the project

What is WestVic Academy of Sport? WestVic’s business is working with athletes and their supporters to deliver specialist services to help them succeed. Our services and partnerships are all complementary, and the focus is on providing what’s not already in place for athletes which could give them a better opportunity to develop and progress. At current, WestVic supports 110 athletes across 24 different sports; with nearly 50% of those athletes having competed at National level in the past year, including six overseas. To this end, through our various partnerships and networks, we offer the following services:

  • sport science such as physical screening,
  • fitness testing and technique analysis;
  • strength and conditioning programming;
  • nutrition consultations, psychology workshops; and
  • other personal development opportunities.

The structure of service delivery has been designed to be flexible around when the athletes can access the services listed earlier, and in fact which services and to what volume they are necessary in order to only complement and add to existing support for the athletes. The priority is to have only the services necessary for the athletes, and have the timing of service delivery done to be of most benefit to the athletes’ development, performance and progress along their pathway. The Academy’s Management Team will work with or partners ongoing to negotiate services necessary and organise their delivery. How can you help? With your support we can continue to build athletes that future generations of your family will always be proud of. Your donation will help make a lasting difference WestVic-supported athletes via increased the quantity and quality of its services without having athletes pay more. As a donor to this project, your donation today will ensure that you or your family are recognised by us. You will receive a Certificate of Appreciation signed by our best performing athletes. Where will your donation go? Funds will go directly into helping our athletes. Investment in WestVic will be directed wholly to increased training and service provision opportunities for athletes.
