Giants' Academy Morning at the University of Canberra

Greater Western Sydney AFL launched their Academy Program at the University of Canberra today. The Academy Program is for young AFL players from across the GWS region (Greater Western Sydney, Canberra, the South Coast and Southern NSW) who are interested in playing at an elite level and have been identified as players of the future.

The first Academy session was held on the University of Canberra‘s campus. More than 100 young players were tested for agility, sprint speed, vertical jump height, kicking accuracy and handball skills. The testing was undertaken by UCNISS staff.

The day was another step in the partnership between the University and Greater Western Sydney AFL. This follows the signing of a memorandum of understanding in September 2010.
