What is the WVAS?
WestVic’s business is working with athletes and their supporters to deliver specialist services to help them succeed. Our services and partnerships are all complementary, and the focus is on providing what’s not already in place for athletes which could be in place to give them a better opportunity to develop and progress.
To this end, through our various partnerships and networks, we offer the following services: sport science such as physical screening, fitness testing and technique analysis; strength and conditioning programming; nutrition consultations, psychology workshops and other personal development opportunities.
The structure of service delivery has been designed to be flexible around when the athletes can access the services listed earlier, and in fact which services and to what volume they are necessary in order to only complement and add to existing support for the athletes. The priority is to have only the services necessary for the athletes, and have the timing of service delivery done to be of most benefit to the athletes’ development, performance and progress along their pathway. The Academy’s Management Team will work with or partners ongoing to negotiate services necessary and organise their delivery.
