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.

“The Academy is continuing to grow and develop maturity and determination of student athletes in a professional setting in which we strive to be recognised on a state and national level. The Academy has had recent success at the national level, as well has developing community partnerships with local affiliations. In 2022, as a team we are looking to produce a strong performance at the SACCSS Athletics championships.”

Mr Thomas Wilson – Director of Athletics
