Talented Athlete Program

The NEGS Talented Athlete Program is designed to support and nurture elite athletes, enabling them to reach their full potential in their chosen sport. Through a holistic and individualised approach, the program focuses on developing athletes’ skills, physical fitness, knowledge, and overall well-being while upholding NEGS’s values of excellence, responsibility, and integrity.

The program consists of the following five components:

  1. Specialist Coaching: Qualified coaches provide athletes with weekly team training sessions, helping them develop their technical and tactical competence in their respective sports.
  1. Athletic Development: A qualified strength and conditioning coach works with athletes to enhance their speed, strength, power, agility, balance, flexibility, and reduce the risk of injury. Athletes undergo comprehensive fitness testing and receive 1-2 strength and conditioning sessions per week, along with individualised training programs tailored to maximise their athletic performance.
  1. Holistic Growth: Qualified professionals guide athletes in various areas such as recovery techniques, injury prevention and management, nutrition, sports psychology, anti-doping, media and public relations, etiquette, and time management. Athletes participate in education sessions addressing these topics to foster their overall development.


  1. Individual Athlete Plans: Athletes receive individualised plans each semester that identify their strengths and areas for improvement. The plans focus on technical preparation, tactical preparation, physical preparation, and mental preparation to help athletes progress and excel in their sport.
  1. High-Performance Excursions: Athletes have access to high-performance camps where they learn from experienced coaches and athletes performing at the highest level. The program also supports athletes in their representative pathway within their sport, providing information and assistance to register for relevant NSW trials. Transportation to and from NSW IGSA trials is reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

It’s important to note that high-performance excursions and participation in IGSA and CIS travel may incur additional charges.

Through the NEGS Talented Athlete Program, athletes have the opportunity to receive top-quality coaching, enhance their physical abilities, gain valuable knowledge, and access high-performance environments. The program aims to support athletes as they progress along their sporting journey, providing them with the tools and guidance needed to reach their goals. NEGS takes pride in producing talented athletes who have the potential to become future world champions.
