Athlete Develoment Program

Elizabeth College currently runs the largest Athlete Development Program (ADP) in the state. Two of our sport specific programs (Hockey and Netball) are run as evening classes and students in grade 9 or above from all schools are eligible to apply to be included. As part of their regular timetable for grade 11 and 12 students Elizabeth College also offers Athlete Development Programs for soccer/futsal, along with a general class for athletes from other sports.

Students interested in participating in ADP must play in an organised sporting competition in the year they undertake the course and have access to a coach who can report on their progress. ADP enrolment is open to students regardless of ability or experience as long as they are passionate about improving their performance.

The ADP provides students with an opportunity to develop their sport specific skills and their all round fitness which will ultimately lead to improved sport performance. ADP’s holistic approach to developing athletes also includes sports tutorials sessions that enable participants to develop knowledge around a number of key areas such as sports nutrition, methods of training, components of fitness, physiology, sport psychology and competition preparation.DSC_0038
