Athletics New Zealand are pleased to announce that there will be a physiotherapy service, development advice/guidance and operations assistance for New Zealand Youth and Junior athletes at the 2020 Australian National Track & Field Championships.
Youth and Junior athletes that choose to attend the Championships in Sydney will have access to:
- Physio support at the track (note: the intention of this is to support any athletes that may injure themselves at the Championships and/or have ongoing treatment requirements. Athletes may be prioritized on this basis)
- The ability to approach various staff members and coaches to answer questions around logistics for the Championships, selection processes/policies for 2020/21 Athletics NZ teams or general enquiries about the Athletics NZ development programs
It is understood that a lot of emerging athletes don’t get face-to-face interaction with development staff, so given the high attendance of youth and junior New Zealand athletes, the Australian Championships is an ideal opportunity for this to happen.
Further information will be released closer to the time of the Championships about how and where to utilize these services.
Please note: Senior Program athletes will be individually sent information on their support structure at the Championships in the new year.
