The OAS Dream
More Otago athletes achieving on the national and international stage.
What We Do
OAS co-ordinates, manages and delivers a range of high quality athlete and coach services across Otago and Central Otago, from sports science and sports medicine services through to athlete life advice and coach support. At present these services are being provided to athletes (and their coaches) selected for the Sport NZ Pathway to Podium programme and two locally supported Academy Talent Accelerator Programmes namely Academy Otago and Academy Central Otago.
In addition to this, OAS develops programmes and services in partnership with a range of national and regional organisations. The NZ Elite Motorsport Academy is a programme delivered in partnership with Motorsport NZ and the Motorsport NZ Scholarship Trust.
