Providing Services to the Australian Women's Polocrosse Team
The Mid West Academy of Sport (MWAS) and Central West Health and Rehab (CWHR) are using their expertise to provide the Australian Women’s Polocrosse Team with some fitness and nutrition education. Two months ago the athletes were provided with a conditioning plan to aid their preparation for this weekend’s test against New Zealand. With all of the athletes in town this week they are now going through some more intense testing and education. CWHR are testing the functional movement abilities and core strength of the athletes. The athletes will then receive instruction on a range of exercises and sessions that they will do leading up to their next test match. The athletes will also engage in an interactive workshop with Dietician Temika Lee about the nutritional needs of Polocrosse athletes.
Chris Darlington, MWAS CEO said “It is fantastic that athletes outside of MWAS are benefitting from the network of specialists that we have identified whilst setting up the Academy. We are so fortunate to have the expertise of Central West Health and Rehab located in Geraldton and I am very confident in their ability to not only provide services to MWAS athletes, but also to National Teams. Obviously for Polocrosse the priority is to have the horses in top shape, but as the sport is becoming more competitive, the athletes need to also be in peak condition to play aggressively and at their best throughout the entire match”
