High Performing Sport aims to provide courageous young people talented in the sports of Basketball and Volleyball with the opportunity to pursue excellence in a supportive educational environment with the flexibility to accommodate sport and school commitments.
Students are required to apply for either the High Performing Basketball or High Performing Volleyball program and, once accepted, are provided with the opportunity to further refine skills and represent the College at high levels connected with other likeminded athletic and talented students. A key focus of both programs is the provision of quality coaching and training sessions delivered to students from both highly qualified teaching staff and outside sporting professionals.
The philosophy of the High Performing Sport program is centred on not only sporting performance but the development of the whole athlete. This is to provide students the knowledge, training and support needed to develop into a high performing athlete.
Students gain knowledge and development in strength and conditioning, nutrition, skill acquisition and development as well as fitness testing and overall wellbeing. Students will also learn extra-curricular skills such as time management, communication and leadership.
