DescriptionAligned with SACE Stage 1 Integrated Learning and the Football Federation Australia National Curriculum, our popular Specialist Soccer Program takes a holistic approach to continue developing and assisting boys and girls to reach their full potential in a fun, active and highly engaging setting.
Subject OutcomesThis subject focusses on sport-specific theoretical knowledge, analysis and practical application, and is designed to develop each student’s actions, behaviours and acquisition of knowledge. In Year 11, students undertake a personal exploration that demonstrates their practical skills and knowledge; develop and deliver collaborative coaching sessions to small groups; and complete a personal venture that communicates relevant information, concepts, and ideas about their own playing skills and ability.
Advice To StudentsParticipants have usually undertaken the Year 8, 9 and 10 programs, however, new candidates wishing to apply will require a high-level interest in soccer, as well as a desire to learn about concepts specifically related to sport, physical activity, healthy lifestyles and sport science
