Understanding the importance of supporting athletes both on and off the competition floor, Gymnastics NSW has joined forces with the NSW Institute of Sport to provide world class athlete wellbeing & engagement (AW&E), and nutrition services.
The partnership will provide 40 of GNSW’s High Performance Program athletes with the opportunity to receive training and support from NSWIS experts across numerous disciplines including career and education, personal development, community engagement, and performance nutrition.
The program will support targeted high performance athletes to make informed decisions that impact their performance in both sport and life. By providing guidance, support, resources and education we aim to develop athletes who display the high performance behaviours required to successfully progress through the high performance pathway.
GNSW is committed to ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of members. This scholarship is one of the ways that GNSW is providing services and support that will assist high performance athletes to access services that will assist them both in and out of the gym.
