WRAS Orientation was held over the November 14th and 15th weekend, with approximately 110 athletes from the AFL, Basketball, Golf, Hockey, Lone Star and Para Sports programs attending. The Orientation weekend provides the opportunity for WRAS athletes, squad staff and parents to undertake a thorough induction into WRAS procedures and learn about their upcoming season with WRAS.
Over the course of the weekend the WRAS athletes participated in an injury prevention screening, under the guidance of Phyz-X physiotherapist Leigh Milller and Charles Sturt University Exercise Interns. Athletes also participated in team meetings, education sessions, fitness and skills testing as well as speed and agility training with coaches from the highly regarded Roger Fabri Academy Speed Academy.
For the AFL, Basketball, Golf and Hockey squads they were also able to participate in their first team training sessions for the program.
The 2022 WRAS sports programs will undertake Orientation at Charles Sturt University in November 2021. The weekend schedule will be uploaded once all trials have been finalised (October 2021).
