OVERVIEW & OBJECTIVES
What is the WVAS Horsham College Partnership?
Established in 2018, the Horsham College and WVAS partnership is now in its third year. Building upon the successful early implementation years, the partnership was refined to give a greater variety of coaching and educational opportunities to our 10 athletes. The athletes selected are representing their respective sport or activity at preferably state level.
The aim of the partnership is to provide services to these athletes which they could not otherwise access, therefore completing and complimenting their current coaching, training and competition environments. The program runs from February to December each year. The academy management works with the school’s Partnership Leader and associated staff to deliver all services.
What is the Peak Performance Program?
The peak performance program complements our WVAS partnership program. It is a 2 year program where student athletes can train three sessions a week in the Horsham College Peak Performance Training Centre. Students can be in both programs. Peak Performance students also have the opportunity to complete two VET certificates; Certificate II Sport & Recreation (Year 9) and Certificate II Sport Orientated Career Participation (Year 10).
