The Sports Institute was established in 2007 to identify students who have a high level of skill, knowledge and previous experience in their chosen sport. The aim is to improve the skill levels of players at a junior level so that by the time they reach senior level, they are significantly advanced. Boys in Years 7 to 10 participate in the Institute, representing six key sports at the College: Basketball, Cricket, Football, Rowing, Rugby, and Water Polo. The Institute takes approximately 130 boys each year across these year groups.
Students who are involved in the Institute are proving to be fitter, better prepared for their season and more disciplined in their health and fitness. They benefit from presentations by experts that impart key strategies the boys can use to improve their sporting preparation and performance. Pre-season fitness, conditioning, theory, nutrition and time management are covered as well as skill development in their chosen sport
