Rising Stars Visit Australian Institute of Sport
The Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) is Australia’s premiere sports training institute.
Outstanding athlete results combined with skilled coaches, world-class facilities and cutting-edge sports science sports medicine services have given the AIS its international reputation as a world’s best practice model for high performance athlete development.
The camp will focus on teaching the drivers the importance of fitness, nutrition, media and marketing whilst putting them through their paces with intensive fitness training and recovery sessions.
Instructors will test the Rising Stars’ core stability, vertical leap and grip strength as well as push up tests, sprint tests and a beep test.
The Institute’s nutrition experts, who will aim to educate the drivers on what to eat and what not to eat, will prepare all meals during the tour. At the end of each day, the group will reside at the AIS Halls of Residence with other young athletes using the facility.
Longtime Speedway media experts Darren Disbury and Wade Aunger will attend the intensive camp to coach the young drivers on how to present and market themselves to sponsors, interviewers, radio and television audiences and more.
The Rising Stars will return to their hometowns Thursday evening.
