hundred students will meet with 13 Olympic athletes as part of the Active Youth
Development Program at the Nichols Point Primary School in Mildura on October
The students from years five and six will be given a unique insight into the Olympic Games as the Olympians share stories about how they became involved in sport and the positive impact of sport on their lives.
During the Mildura program the students will be coached in their preferred sport by an Olympian. Sports include athletics, basketball, boxing, gymnastics, football, swimming and volleyball.
In the afternoon Olympians will combine with the local Clubs to run a “Come and Try” session to showcase their sport and the Club.
