HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION: SPORTS ACADEMY – Subject Type: Split; 1 Semester or Full Year

Students involved in the Sports Academy at PASS are given the opportunity to develop skills in both literacy and numeracy via the medium of sports. The program caters for both boys and girls with male and female specific classes being run during year 8 and 9. Students are given the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge in sports that are prominent in the community, including Netball, Football, Soccer, Cricket, Touch Football and Basketball via practical sessions run within lesson time.

It is encouraged that students are already involved in these sports within the community. This includes, but is not limited to coaching, nutrition, training, administration, and how a season is structured.

Students are required to apply if they wish to be involved in the program, and upon successful application must adhere to the school’s behaviour policies as these students will be representing both the Sports Academy and Port Augusta Secondary School in both local and regional competitions.

Students will develop strategies to improve sporting performance and monitor this improvement through strategic data collection and analysis. Students will learn to evaluate their strategies and make recommendations for the future.
