High Performance Sports Program

The High Performance Sports Program (HPSP) is a program aimed at supporting and developing highly talented athletes in their chosen sporting fields.

The course combines the study requirements of daily academics with the training and development of the student’s practical talents as appropriate for our Year 8 and 9 high performing Student-Athletes.

Our High Performance Sports Program has highly acclaimed sport-specific coaches who have all played and/or coached in high performing environments, including Pioneers head coach Richard Hill and team captain Tom Daly, local netball legend Donna Denton, our program head coach and former semi-professional soccer player Nathan Fleetwood, and the highly experienced elite coaches from within our College teaching team. Students receive ongoing support, coaching, tailored programs and advice specific to them and their chosen sport, as well as access to external professionals in the fields of strength and conditioning, sports psychology and nutrition.

Together with academic expectations, students are exposed to personalised strength and conditioning programs, individual training, team workout sessions and strategy development. The program is developed in accordance with the Australian Curriculum and aims to not only develop practical skills necessary for their chosen sport, but also their knowledge of off-field related topics such as sport psychology, nutrition, data analytics, weight training and recovery methods.
