The Peel Sport and Recreation Network (PSRN) are pleased to introduce its regional talent development programme (RTD) known as the Peel Regional Academy of Sports (PRAS). This programme will target specific athletes and provide them with support, in terms of creating training environments within the Peel region. Those athletes who receive a scholarship will receive support with services such as strength and conditioning, sports science and nutritional advice, as well as access to talent development camps and coaching support. This programme will allow athletes who reside within the Peel region to spend more time training at a closer proximity to their home base. The core aspect of the programme will be sport specific strength and conditioning sessions conducted on a weekly basis by industry professionals from our Peel base.
This PSRN project is supported by the Department of Sport and Recreation and the relevant State Sporting Associations. Each scholarship is for a period of 12 months, commencing January 2015. Scholarships will be reviewed annually with the results of athletes to be tracked and used in a renewal process the following year.
