The North Coast Academy of Sport Skate Program plays a vital role in identifying, monitoring, and developing the skills of young skate athletes. Members of the squad will be exposed to expert coaching services, and sport specific education in areas such as strength and conditioning, nutrition, sport psychology, sport media & communications.
Supported by Australian Skate Federation and in partnership with the Mid North Coast and Northern Rivers Skate Clubs, the Academy has worked to develop the NCAS Skate Program to be in alignment with the Northern NSW Skate Competition Pathway. In delivering this program, we hope that it will assist our athletes towards the next step in their sporting careers. The program will be conducted from April to September 2023.
