The 2008 Strength and Conditioning program is now well underway with many athletes starting their program, and many more to meet with the S&C interns over the next week during the first S&C Road Trip.
The new interns, Nathan and Ash, have a lot to live up to with the previous years S&C program being recognised for its success and innovation in a ceremony held at Telstra Stadium several weeks ago. The NSW Sports Safety Awards (an initiative of the NSW Sporting Injuries Committee) awarded the 2007 S&C program with the silver medal in the regional category of outstanding education and promotion project in the field of sporting injury prevention and reduction.
Congratulations and thanks go to Dr Stephen Bird and the School of Movement Studies and 2007 S&C interns Ryan Drew and Geoff Minett for their hard work.
Congratulations also go to the Northern Inland Academy of Sport who won the Bronze award in the same category for their RACE program.
