Somerset College athletes Starr Scott, Bayley d’Hotman de Villiers, Kade Reynoldson and Michael Dobroskok (pictured) along with Sports Physiologist Dr Annette Eastwood and Strength and Conditioning Coach Casey Reynoldson, attended Griffith University for the annual ‘After the Siren’ workshop, 26 July.

The programme is designed for school aged elite and developing athletes based around good role modelling behaviour, tips on maximising opportunities and preparation for life as an elite athlete.

Some of the topics covered during the day included elite sport after school, leadership, mental preparation, social media as well as nutrition and recovery.

The students also had the opportunity to meet elite athletes from various sports and hear how they balance training and study commitments.

The workshop was an excellent opportunity for both Somerset College students and staff.
