The focus of the course is for students to explore and realise personal potential through content such as functional anatomy, exercise physiology, fitness and conditioning, specific training regimes, motor learning and coaching, sports psychology and biomechanics in sport. Students will progressively develop skills, knowledge and understanding that will
enable them to pursue their personal interests and potential in physical activity as athletes, coaches, officials and/or administrators. This general course incorporates a larger practical component to apply scientific principles and terminology in a hands on and interactive way. All students undertaking this course are expected to participate or officiate at the school swimming and athletics carnivals.
Sports undertaken will be selected from a range of individual and team sports including activities such as tennis, netball, volleyball, golf, hockey, soccer, touch, AFL, cricket and badminton. The sports chosen will be done in much greater depth than in lower school.
