SASI Rate Yourself Program

The South Australian Institute of Sport (SASI) has turned to social networking to broaden its talent identification program. On the SASI facebook page you can enter your fitness test results (see the "Rate Yourself" tab near the top of the page).

This program is looking for young South Australians aged between 13 to 25 years. Potential athletes need to submit their details and results of a few standard fitness tests, and if they think you might have potential to take it to the next level, they invite you in for another testing session which may lead to bigger and better things in the world of sport.
