After an excellent inaugural term, WPV are incredibly excited to continue our Regional Academy offering for border athletes in Term 3 (days and times dependent on numbers).

We will look to run the program similar to how it ran in the inaugural term, so please fill out the EOI if you are interested in participating. In tandem with the EOI numbers, WPV will also be sending out a Feedback Survey to help inform the structure of Term 3 Regional Academy. Your feedback here will be instrumental in us delivering an improved program.

Details on Term 3 program to be provided in coming weeks.

Coaching Opportunity

WPV are always on the lookout for new coaches who wish to work with our young athletes as they move along the Elite Pathway. We are seeking both regular coaches to develop and grow our athletes, but also specialist coaches who would like to come in on a part-time basis to teach our athletes about a particular area of expertise. This could be in areas such as Swimming, Goalkeeping, Strength & Conditioning, Stretching, Nutrition etc.

If you are interested, please complete the EOI so we have you on record for opportunities throughout the year.

We look forward to another great year of our Academy and Development programs!

WPV Team
