How Can Athlete Sanctuary Help?

Training programs, individual athlete coaching and mentoring services are available for track athletes, recreational runners and elite distance athletes up to full marathon distance.

Foundational athletics clinics for primary school children are also available as part of Athletics Australia and IAAF’s program – Sporting Schools Program. The Sporting Schools Program is a FREE government funded initiative program that is designed to help schools increase children’s participation in sport, and to connect children with community sport.

The Sporting School’s program provides an introduction to athletics in a fun and active format which keeps kids moving, engaged and builds age appropriate skills.

All primary schools throughout Australia can apply for funding for 3 out of the 4 terms of the year for Sporting Schools. Approved schools will receive funds to be used for the provision/delivery of sport before during or after school to their students.
