Yesterday evening (26th July) saw the launch of the GCAS Surf Life Saving program. Surf Life Saving Queensland are providing coaches for the practical sessions while GCAS are presenting the Educational programs which are the ‘value added’ areas of athlete development. The athletes were blessed with beautiful weather and wonderful coaches. Nutrition was first topic to be discussed and all athletes now are wiser with their nutrition choices pre and post training. Athletes were also given a very comprehensive explanation about why foods play such an important part in performance.
