Academy to help put the polish on talented nine

NINE of the region’s most talented young players are a step closer to achieving their dreams today after being inducted into the new Fitness Plus Northern Inland Academy of Sport Tennis Talent Development Program.

NIAS executive officer Peter Annis-Brown said the program was a result of a three-year partnership with Tennis NSW, and with NIAS scholarships would help them reach their potential on and off the court.

“The academy’s main focus with every program we run is to provide opportunities for young, talented country athletes to overcome major disadvantages compared to their city counterparts,” Annis-Brown said.

“In addition to intensive skill -based coaching, which is often only available in metropolitan areas, they are also offered unique education sessions in sports medicine, mental training, public speaking, media presentation and nutrition.

“We are delighted to welcome popular Tamworth gym Fitness Plus onto the team as the tennis sponsor.

“This partnership also represents an opportunity for our athletes to introduce the advantages of gym work into their individual training program.”

The new NIAS tennis squad will receive specialist coaching by Justin Sheriff (Armidale) and Jarrod Campbell, (Tamworth) in conjunction with the recently appointed Tennis NSW/NSWIS Regional Coach Ben Pyne.

2005 FITNESS PLUS TENNIS SQUAD: Rachel Assef (Moree), Andrew George (Gunnedah), Jock Gardiner, Angus Leslie, Daniel Nash, Michael Watson, Brooke Whitten, Emelyn Starr (Tamworth), Brock Sheriff (Armidale).

In addition to the above core squad, five additional young players – Kirsty Assef, Amy Kaukiainen (Moree), Brandon Burey (Guyra), Joseph Teege and Shelby Watson (Armidale) – have been invited to attend a number of development camps, as part of a Bronze Squad.
