About the camp
Unfortunately the 2017 Development Camp has been cancelled due to low numbers.

The Development Camp, previously called the Oz Squad commenced in 1996 Australia wide as a development camp for athletes who showed potential in their chosen athletic events. These camps are renowned for their use of experienced, high level coaches and sports professionals. As a result of these camps many athletes have experienced expert coaching, nutrition, sports psychology and strength and conditioning sessions which they may not have had a chance to access otherwise. A high percentage of athletes that have attended Oz Squad in the past have gone onto achieve great results in National and International competitions. 

Athletes aged 12 and above are invited to attend this year’s Development Camp. As places are limited, first preference will go to athletes that are in the Q and A Squads and the ANQ Development Squads. However any athlete that is a member of an ANQ club or Athletics Australia can apply to attend.

  • Sports Physiotherapy

  • Strength and Conditioning 
  • Aquatic Training and Recovery 
  • Nutrition 
  • Relaxation and meditation exercises 
  • Athlete mentor sessions 
  • Bio-mechanics

The camp  also welcomes selected athletes coaches and any local coaches to participate in the camps various sessions. This is part of a reoccurring program to develop coaches knowledge through Australia. Coaches have a choice to attend the whole camp or attend on a daily basis. Coaching Seminars will also be provided in the evening for any coach or teacher that would like to attend.
