Kiama Council has resolved to include as part of their sponsorship of the Illawarra Academy of Sport (IAS), membership to the Leisure Centre for local elite athletes.
Council has partnered with the IAS since its inception in 1985. The IAS has produced many elite athletes from the Kiama Municipality including Grace Stewart, Shaun Timmins, Josh and Brett Morris and Sally Fitzgibbons.
Currently, Kiama athletes are required to travel to Shellharbour to make use of the complimentary gymnasium as part of their scholarship.
The silver student membership will benefit 20 local athletes.
