Special Programs

Elite Sports Program

The Elite Sports Program assists students to balance their academic, social, and sporting aspirations and commitments. It provides talented athletes the flexibility they may need to succeed in these areas. This may involve the opportunity to train during school hours or to have scheduled study lessons to focus on the learning time they miss owing to extensive training commitments. 

It is expected that a student in the program would be at a state or national representation level (or equivalent). Acceptance into the program is based on an interview with the Head of Health, Wellness and Sport. Each student’s timetable is constructed by the Dean of Academic Administration in conjunction with the Head of Health, Wellness and Sport.

A number of supplementary services are also available to students should they wish to include these in their programs. These services include dieticians, sports psychologists, and sport specific strength and conditioning programs. They may also have the opportunity to enrol in a Certificate II in Sport & Recreation traineeship (this incurs additional costs). These vary depending on the choice of sport and supplementary services. For further information, please contact Ms Chris Barnes cbarnes@clayfield.qld.edu.au.
