The University of Melbourne boasts a number of elite athletes whose achievements in their chosen sporting fields are world class. The Elite Athletes in Schools Program gives secondary school students the opportunity to hear our athletes speak about their achievements and experiences, and learn about what it takes to be successful - academically, in the sporting arena, and in life. The program is suitable for not only students involved in sport, but any student with a hobby or extra-curricular activity outside school hours. Our athletes will give advice on how to manage a busy schedule and achieve balance, using examples of personal experiences relevant to students entering their final years of secondary school.
The Elite Athletes in Schools Program allows schools to book a date and time for two elite athletes from the University of Melbourne to speak to a cohort of students. Schools may be eligible to access this program in a complimentary capacity.
