Following a highly successful 2015 ClubsNSW Academy Games, the Central Coast will be the venue again in 2016. The 2015 Games saw over 750 athletes, staff and volunteers from across New South Wales participate and compete in the various different sports.
Emily Burgess-Moore on the ClubsNSW Academy Games: “It is always exciting to organise and run an event of this magnitude. Each year the ClubsNSW Academy Games continues to grow and we are proud to give these great athletes such an opportunity”
The Games provide the opportunity for the State’s pre-elite young athletes to have high level competition and social interaction in a ‘mini Olympics’ style competition, whilst enjoying excellent facilities and warm hospitality on the beautiful Central Coast.
