DraftStar Tim Watson Scholarship Selection Trials

The DraftStar Tim Watson Scholarship provides 20 places in the DraftStar Academy, a year-long holistic program that focuses on improving young athletes on and off the field.  DraftStar teamed up with AFL champion Tim Watson to develop the stars of the future.  

“I’m delighted to be involved and to enable aspiring young athletes who might not otherwise get the chance, the opportunity to be involved in an elite AFL training experience,” Tim Watson said. “I’m looking forward to being involved with DraftStar, especially as my son, Jobe, is a DraftStar ambassador, and will watch with great interest the progress of the Tim Watson scholars.”

300 young hopefuls applied to be included in this first rounds of scholars, which included completing online registration and payment, medical forms and parental consent.  On the day we registered the participants in age based groups, and they were rotated through skills testing and sessions on nutrition, motivation and leadership.

The feedback was really positive; here are some posts from the DraftStar Facebook page:
