The sports excellence program has been developed in response to the needs of students who have a passion for sport and wish to achieve excellence in their sporting endeavours. The aim of the program is to project students' learning experiences beyond what is possible in normal timetabled PDHPE and sport lessons.
To accomplish this students are provided with learning opportunities which engage them in challenging and enriching activities which focus on improving their fitness, knowledge and understanding of a wide range of elements required for success on the sports field.
The program involves training sessions or seminars and includes the following:
- Media presentation, sports injuries, nutrition and sport psychology (including goal setting, mindfulness and mental rehearsal) seminars
- exercise classes (boot camp, circuit training, weight training, speed and power training, high intensity interval training (HIIT), flexibility)
- excursions to professional sports facilities.
