2023/24 UAA Hockey Scholarship Program
Southern Sports Academy Hockey Squad will meet at least twice a month for training sessions from October 2023 - April 2024 for the Your Local Clubs Academy Games (break for Christmas), to receive the most professional coaching available in the area.

The program will provide coaching, training, and athletic development to improve athletes with a view to:
Develop the fundamental skill level of athletes which will enhance their opportunities for selection into the Hockey NSW performance pathway
Prepare athletes to a level where their transition to any representation ‘seamless’ in terms of programs or pathways;
Increase the level of success of those athletes at competition and events.

In addition to the quality coaching, all scholarship holders in the Academy are also exposed to a range of workshops from our specialist consultants including workshops relating to Sports Psychology, Nutrition, Recovery, Athletic Development as well as receiving Strength and Conditioning training that is specific to their sport with complimentary gym membership.

The Southern Sports Academy understands there is a great deal more to being an outstanding athlete than what happens solely on the sporting field. To this end, the Academy provides professional tuition for its athletes on Personal Development related issues. Topics that are covered include (but are not restricted to) Leadership Skills, Goal Setting, Expectations and Obligations of the Professional Athlete, Responsible Use of Social Media, Time Management and Media Skills.

All this adds up to the Southern Sports Academy leading the way in terms of providing valuable development opportunities for junior athletes in the Southern NSW region.

* Scholarships are not in the form of a monetary sum but enable the athlete to participate in Academy development programs at a greatly reduced rate.
To be eligible for consideration:

- Nominees must be 16-18 years old in 2024 (athletes born 2006, 2007, and 2008 inclusive)
