The aim is to improve the skill levels of players at a junior level so that by the time they reach senior level, they are significantly advanced. In Years 9 and 10 students participate in their chosen Academy, representing one of key sports at this school: Rugby or Netball. The Academies take approximately 40 students each year across these sporting codes.
Students who are involved in an Academy are proving to be fitter, better prepared for their season and more disciplined in their health and fitness. They benefit from presentations by experts that impart key strategies the students can use to improve their sporting preparation and performance. Pre-season fitness, conditioning, theory, nutrition and time management are covered as well as skill development in their chosen sport.
