The Pursu32+ Regional Academies of Sport is a selective talent ID program delivered in partnership by NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) and the Regional Academies of Sport (RAS) that aims to identify, support and provide opportunities to aspiring talent from regional NSW. The program provides talented regional athletes with exposure to high level expertise in coaching, dietetics, nutrition, self regulation, performance planning, skill technique and body control, assisting these athletes to be NSWIS ‘READY’ to succeed on the international stage.

The program kicked off for 2024 with a second core camp from the 1st to the 4th of February at Jindabyne Sport & Recreation Centre/NSTC campus!

IAS athletes Addison Bonham (Basketball), Adax Brienen (Beach Volleyball) and Lucy Darragh (Surfing) were lucky enough to participate in physical activity sessions, education and practical workshops exploring the key theme of “My Sporting Journey”. The program explored the notion of a ‘sporting journey’ from numerous angles, including leading athletes to consider; “What does it look like?”, “What will it take?”, and “How bad do you want it?”.

Addison, Adax and Lucy heard from a range of experts across high performance and talent development disciplines, with 20 staff attending from NSWIS, the Regional Academies of Sport network, the NSW Office of Sport, State and National Sporting organisations and the University of Canberra.

The PURSU32+ Program is an incredible opportunity for those involved to develop both as athletes and as holistic individuals. We can’t wait to watch Addison, Adax and Lucy continue to participate and grow!
