Education and Sport Opportunities for Student Athletes

Sport SA and Athletes Dream Pty Ltd have signed a strategic alliance to activate and promote the importance of Athlete Career Development. Through this alliance, qualifying student athletes will receive opportunities to combine Education and Sport, particularly in North America.
