The Scholarship

Scholarships are designed to help students in every aspect of their pursuit of sporting excellence. The scholarship is not primarily concerned with offering financial assistance to recipients, but will be tailored to meet individual needs on a case by case basis.

  • Fitness Testing and Anthropometry
  • Nutrition workshop and consultation
  • Performance lifestyle
