This is your chance to visit a High Performance Centre and see elite Australian athletes "at work".
Our tours run for two hours.
We host more than 100 secondary and primary schools annually. Sporting clubs and corporations also visit our facility.
Let VIS elite athletes show you through the high performance and recovery areas and then choose from a variety of electives:
- Nutrition - including tips from Nutrition Coordinator and Sports Dietitian Kylie Andrew
- Sport science video with questionnaire aimed at Y9/10 or VCE - see more details below
- Careers in Sport - our insights into finding a job in the sports industry
- Fitness regimes- insights into athlete fitness programs

A modest amount of physical activity and testing is involved.
Touring groups are exposed to our "BeFitBeWell" philosophy linking physical activity and good nutrition with wellness.
Visitors are also placed on Watt Bike to measure their power output and compare themselves to an Olympic Track Cyclist.
