2021 - 2022 Squad

Our Elite Squads

“Over a decade of competing internationally for our countries, and being coached by some of the best, most well-renowned coaches in the world has taught the AIS coaches a thing or two! And it's this energy, and experience that has helped guide our elite squads. 

 

Our elite squads are proof that a controlled competitive environment helps produce results within young athletes. Over the last two years we have successfully helped develop some of the best athletes in the country who have represented the AIS elite, and have run, jumped, and thrown further than ever before; with many medals being won along the way.”

Making the above Elite Squads is a huge achievement for any young athlete. A massive congratulations on this. As always, the decision to select the squad is a difficult one, however as the squads are performance-driven; data collected over the years ensures that a fair decision is made with squad selection. 

As always, being on the squad does not guarantee a young athlete will remain there, as strict criteria must be maintained throughout the year to ensure we are able to give the squad its continued ''elite status''. 

We welcome any parents that feel their child should be part of this squad to contact us directly to discuss.
