ATHLETICS ACADEMY

Athletics Academy

The College’s newest Academy, the Athletics program is coordinated by National level athlete and Level 2 Athletics Australia Coach, Thomas Wilson. Utilising the College’s own modified synthetic Athletics track, Academy athletes are provided coaching and high performance services through a Talent Identification and Development (TID) program and are eligible to apply for the College’s Athlete Development Program (ADP).

Students compete in an annual SACCSS Carnival, Victorian All Schools Championships, the Victorian Schools Relays Championships and Nitro Schools Challenge throughout the year.

“2019 saw the College’s Athletics program flourish, with a clean sweep of all Age Groups in the annual SACCSS Carnival, including the crowning of 4 individual Champions and multiple SACCSS records broken. Following on from this the College had a record number of participants at Victorian All Schools, with two students qualifying for the 2020 National Championships in sprints and hurdles.”
