Sideline Connections Issue 4

Happy New Year from the Sideline Champions Team!  With less than four months to go until the eyes of the world will be on the Gold Coast, the excitement and anticipation is building.  Within the 4th edition of Sideline Connections, we hear from three-time gold medallist and Rockhampton’s Hockey champion Mark Knowles on the impact family and friends can have on an athlete’s performance and the important support the Sideline Champions program is providing the athletes, coaches and officials of the 2018 Australian Team.

The Queen Baton Relay arrived into Australia on the 24 December and is making its journey across Australia’s states and territories and through the hands of 3,800 batonbearers.  Sideline Connections brings you information on the locations and dates of where you can see the baton and share the experience.  Finally, we are excited to say that more Australian team announcements have been made, so check out the Sports Update section.

Please enjoy Sideline Connections.
