Guide for athletes on when to drink

Losing large amounts of fluid has a negative effect on training performance. Athletes can use this guide to assist in avoiding dehydration in training and competition.

Launch of new NSWIS Athlete Advisory Group

A newly established Athlete Advisory Group will help guide the decision-making of the NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) as the elite sports organisation prepares for Tokyo 2020 and beyond. The NSWIS Athlete Advisory Group will serve as a link between athletes and NSWIS, with members providing recommendations and feedback to the NSWIS management and board.
