SANO Performance Program

Emerging Athletes

Focus on the growth of the whole person that drives the performer

At Sano, we have worked with hundreds of young athletes and identified the most important areas needed for accelerated and effective development – and it’s not more training


it is

SANO Health’s Emerging Athletes Program is a unique opportunity to discuss high-performance habits and mindset with some of Australia’s best athletes, from sports including AFL, AFLW, tennis, hockey and diving.

Emerging athletes will have a one-on-one meeting with a SANO expert, or elite athlete of your choice, to further explore a topic that we deliver in the program.

You will learn:

  • How to optimise your energy levels.

  • Enhance your mindset and mental strength.

  • Perform professional athlete recovery.
