EMERGING Wimmera athletes Anna Bush and Andrew Edgerton will get the chance to brush up their skills at an Australian Institute of Sport athetlics camp in Canberra.
The invitation-only three-day camp starts on Sunday and will be attended by some of the best under-15 athletes in the nation, along with some top-level coaches.
All athletes have chosen their field to focus on, with Edgerton choosing sprints, while Bush opted for triple jump.
It is the second time in as many years that Edgerton has attended the camp, after the AIS changed the age-group from under-14s to under-15s this year.
"It's great to train with coaches who are involved with Olympic athletes, so you're really getting the best out of yourself," he said.
"I want to focus on sprints because I won the 100-metre race at last year's state titles."
The 14-year-old moved to Melbourne at the start of the year for a mathematics scholarship at Scotch College.
He has been competing at his new school during the Accredited Private Schools athletics competition for the past seven weeks.
Bush, 14, said she was looking forward to the experience.
"I'm excited about meeting new people and learning new things," she said.
The Horsham College year nine student had a stellar 2012-13 athletics season and hopes to keep improving.
Horsham athletics coach Ricky Price said the camps provided a good chance for young athletes to mix with some of the best in the business.
"The main aim is to encourage these athletes to continue in the sport for years to come," he said.
