THE South East Regional Academy of Sport (SERAS) is seeking talented young athletes (both boys and girls) for several new scholarship programs in 2014.

SERAS is offering up to six scholarships in its new Athletics Program being run in partnership with Athletics ACT. The academy is also seeking to fill up to six scholarship places in the new Squash Program and up to 14 places in its Touch Football Program.

These programs are designed to run for approximately 6 months and consist of an online induction process, an Education Program, physiological testing of athletes, and strength and conditioning programs that are monitored online by SERAS intern students studying sport science at the University of Canberra. The skill development component of each program will be delivered over 2-3 weekend or school holiday training camps by qualified coaching consultants.

Athletes that wish to nominate for these programs must meet the age range specified in 2014: Athletics (15-17 years); Squash (13-17 years); and Touch Football (13-16 years). Athletes must reside in one of the local government areas covered by SERAS that include: Bega Valley; Bombala; Cooma-Monaro; Eurobodalla; Goulburn-Mulwaree; Palerang; Queanbeyan City; Snowy River; Upper Lachlan; and Yass Valley Councils.
