Jeremy and Jacob join Australia’s best at National U15 Camp

In October each year, Jetstar Little Athletics Australia (LAA) holds an annual National U15 camp over four days at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) in Canberra. The camp is a great opportunity for athletes to be coached by some of Australia’s best coaches, and to receive expert training and education in a range of areas, both practical and theoretical.

Today LAA announced the 98 athletes who were selected to attend the Camp from the 1st - 4th October 2017. Among the four athletes from the ACT were Ginninderra's own Jeremy Maranan and Jacob Davill.

Jeremy was the 2016 ACT team captain at the Australian Little Athletics Championships where he won a silver medal in the 100m and his team mate Jacob also medaled with a bronze in the 800m. The boys are joined by their ACT compatriots Tarcia Collins (Gungahlin) and Charlotte Kalozi (Goulburn) at the Camp.

Jetstar LAA selects the highest performing athletes in each event nationally. Offers for attendance are based on performances at each State’s Track and Field Championships. Selection is by invitation only and is at the discretion of the Jetstar LAA National Camp Organising group.


The athletes will receive coaching from some of Australia's best coaches and receive expert training and education in a range of areas including strength and conditioning, recovery, nutrition just to name a few.
