Athletics Academy

As an Oaklands Wolf you will be given expert coaching and support services which are specific to your stage of development and ability.Athletes can study almost any of the courses available at the College, but choices may be limited due to timetabling and training commitments. We operate a unique three tier system to allow athletes to get the best out of every session in a competitive environment.

To make it easy for you we have the following entry standards as a starting point to give you an idea of the performance standards you will be working with. Our system categorises athletes into the follow working groups:
