XSOAR recognises it can be a challenging experience for high performance athletes and their families to balance the demands of daily training, competition, school, commuting, family time, friends, homework and extra-curricular activities.
To support and help foster the next wave of sporting talent, XSOAR has joined with Wesley College Melbourne, one of Australia’s leading International Baccalaureate (IB) coeducational schools, to establish a full-time High Performance Tennis and School Program for emerging tennis players of secondary school age (Please visit: www.wesleycollege.net/tennis).
XSOAR’s dynamic and innovative program is due to commence in the latter stages of 2018 and will provide aspiring tennis players with a unique opportunity to pursue their sporting talent in tandem with a first-class all-round education.
