Westfield Matildas AIS sports camps
The Westfield Matildas will come to the AIS for five training camps in May and June 2016.
The Westfield Matildas have received a boost to their Rio Games preparations with additional funding assistance from the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) based on the Matildas’ medal-winning potential.
The ASC will assist with funding five training camps at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) in Canberra in May and June in the build-up to the 2016 Rio Games.
Football Federation Australia (FFA) CEO David Gallop said the camps in May and June at the AIS will give the Matildas a top-class training base and replicate the intense preparations that produced such wonderful results in the World Cup and the Games qualifiers.
Westfield Matildas Head Coach Alen Stajcic said the AIS camps would provide the ideal environment for the Rio preparations.
“Everything about the AIS is first-class,” said Stajcic. “The pitches, the sports science, the recovery facilities and the accommodation create the perfect environment to do the work and planning we need before Rio.
