The course involves many of the important factors about succeeding in their chosen sport: technical and tactical awareness, nutritional information, sports psychology, coaching and leadership potential, video analysis and the fitness requirements of the sport.

25% of periods – generic sport science sessions/ plus endorsed coaching/leadership qualifications

75% of periods – practical small group skills sessions with resource coaches specific to the boy's needs.

This course leads onto Year 11 Physical Education as well as further towards Year 12 and 13 Physical Education where there is a pathway for athletes to follow their individual sporting code of choice with relevant practicals attached in the course by way of selection criteria depending on the nature of the code and applicant numbers.
