Preparation for Athletes - ACC and NAS

After reviewing results from previous performances and the College Inter-Guild Athletics carnival, students have been selected in the Newman College Preliminary Athletics squad for 2015.

The ACC carnival (B division) will be held on Thursday 17 September. We will also compete at the annual NAS Athletics Meet on Tuesday 25 August. Both of these events will be at the State Athletics Centre - more information will be given regarding these events closer to the dates.

Please click here to access the training schedule. If your child received a letter of invite (via direct email and student SEQTA messaging) it is expected that they will attend all training sessions. I understand there may be some extenuating circumstances that could hinder the commitment of some students. In this situation I ask you to contact me at the College to discuss this matter.

Training will be held on Tuesday afternoons from 3.45pm to 4.45pm and Thursday mornings from 7.15am to 8.15am. On Thursday mornings students should bring a spoon, bowl and cup as the College will provide breakfast.

There will be a number of training methods used by the various specialist athletics coaches to ensure athletes are well prepared for the wide range of events. It is expected that injured or fatigued members of the squad attend training; these members will be put through a rehabilitation program to ensure they are prepared for the carnival.

We are all looking forward to a very exciting and rewarding Athletics season. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at the College.

Mr Matthew Connell
