Cams Junior Academy Choose Hurricane Members
About 2 months ago the CAMS Junior Academy invited 20 young karters from around Australia between the ages of 14-16 to attend a 3 day camp from 4th – 7th July in Melbourne. The drivers where selected by the Junior Development Manager, Karl Reindler, and where chosen using age and results at State, National and International competition as a criteria. The facility they used was the AAMI Park Sporting Precinct in Melbourne which is also used by Melbourne Demons, Melbourne Victory and Melbourne Storm. The aim of the academy was to identify the up and coming champions of our sport at a young age; educate, encourage and guide our future champions – providing them with the tools they need to become winners at the highest level and provide ongoing support as they progress in their respective careers. We are very proud to say that out of those 20 drivers selected, 5 were from WA and more importantly from Hurricane Go Kart Club. They were Nik Mitic, Tayla Dicker, Tom Howe, Jake Kostecki and Kurt Kostecki (Kurt was unable to attend as he is in the US preparing for the K & N Series). They returned home extremely exhausted but learnt so much about training, health, personal goals, nutrition and basically what it takes to perform at a top level. They trained alongside AFL, NFL and A-League players and had talks from North Melbourne footballers, Steve Hooker, other gold medal winning Olympic athletes. Lewis Hamilton’s trainer even took the kids through their paces. There is a link to the CAMS site which has all the photos, comments, daily wrap ups and a video of the camp at #CAMSacademy and also on their facebook page. CAMS will now select 6-8 drivers from the 19 to attend a further driving camp later in the year, we wish them all well in being selected. http://www.cams.com.au
