New Look AIS Sports Draft

The future of Australian sport has been released and it is looking good so far!

The following link shows a snapshot of what is to come and how aspiring Australian athletes can find themselves right in the thick of it all training to become the next national champion.

In 2014, the Sports Draft focus will be on:

• athletics: throwing, pole vault and sprinting up to 400 metres
• rugby 7s: women
• hockey: goalies (women)
• combat sports
• paddling sports: kayak and canoe (sprint and slalom)
• track sprint cycling

Also alongside this, the Para-Draft has also been released, with the Australian Paralympic Commitee looking for athletes who hold the capabilities to talent transfer or new athletes altogether.

SWAS Athletes, you are encouraged to have a look at both videos. Not only to benefit yourselves, but to also spark the imaginations of others who you feel may fit the criteria.
