Ashdale Secondary College identifies, acknowledges and fosters its students’ strengths. To embrace this philosophy, the College offers a Netball and Soccer Academy that encourages students’ passion, commitment and skill in Physical Education.
Students in each Academy have the desire and commitment to improving their skills, game-play and fitness to excel within the sporting arena. They represent Ashdale Secondary College with pride and are positive ambassadors for their Academy and the College.
Students within the Academy will focus on their chosen sport for two sessions of Physical Education each week. They will have the opportunity to build on their passion for the sport through the development of skills, fitness, strategies, tactics and officiating. Throughout the program students have exposure to coaching experts and guest speakers, opportunities to attain coaching and umpiring qualifications and work with younger athletes from the cluster primary schools.
The focus of each Academy is not only on physical skills but the development of social and interpersonal skills, the sense of belonging to a team and the Ashdale Community.
Students are provided with a range of opportunities in each Academy, including team building days, College representation at national sporting events and international tours.
If students progress into Senior School, they will be involved in the Specialised Sport Science program in
Year 10, creating the foundations of a career pathway in the Sport and Recreation Industry. Year 11 students
will complete the nationally recognised qualification of a Certificate II in Sport and Recreation with a focus on
either Soccer or Netball.
