Club Narooma and Club Dalmeny have come to the aid of the town’s youth by funding the Narooma High School sport science excursion over the next few years.
Narooma Sporting and Services Club general manager Mr Tony Casu attended the high school, meeting with teacher Dion Café of Narooma High School’s sports department, along with the group of students who will be attending the sports management excursion this year.
“Again the club is proud to be supporting the towns youth and being part a project that will help guide their future direction,” Mr Casu said.
Between June 8-10, the Narooma High School Year 12 two unit PDHPE class, will be attending an excursion to the NSW Institute of Sport in Narrabeen.
Over the course of the three days, students will participate in workshops on topics such as V02 Max testing, recovery strategies, strength training, nutrition and psychological strategies to enhance athletic performance.
This opportunity will provide students with hands on experience and direct contact with qualified sport scientists and professional athletes which aims to enhance their understanding of the related syllabus content and potential vocation links within this industry, Mr Cafe said.
The students will also watch the Manly Sea Eagles play Newcastle on Friday, June 8 as well as watching the Sea Eagles train in the lead up to this match at Narrabeen.
“This excursion would not have been possible without the generous donation from Club Narooma,” Mr Cafe said.
“The $3000 will be used to subsidise the student’s expenses over the next couple of years. On behalf of the school, I would like to thank Tony Casu and the clubs for their ongoing support of our athletes and students at Narooma High School.”
