Providing support and balance for off-field engagement and on-field performance


Our Elite Sport Program has many tiers, it starts in Year 7 when talent is identified and moves through to Year 12 when girls often compete at a national level. Girls join the program when they have reached a benchmark set by the Head of Senior School Sport, Mr Andrew Yanitsas. The program is designed to support talented students by giving them vital tools to achieve at top levels in their chosen sport, while supporting them in their daily school life. Tools like time management, sport psychology, resistance training, nutrition and maintaining a good work/life balance for their social, emotional, mental and physical well-being. We work on both goal-setting and resilience. Students learn to bounce back from a set-back, which could be an injury or a particular performance, and refocus on their goals.
