Lavalla Catholic College is a school that recognises and supports students who are Elite Sports Performers within our school and community.
At Lavalla Catholic College we aim to identify and enrich our Elite Sports Performers. We recognize that a high number of our secondary students are competing in their chosen sport at an Elite/State Level. We recognise that many of our students train a significant amount of hours per week, even before and after school as they strive for success. Melbourne based, interstate and overseas competitions frequently require extended absence from school and interruption to face-to-face contact with teachers therefore making appropriate learning adjustments paramount.
A crucial part of the program is to engage with guest speakers as they explain how they manage and balance their sporting commitments with school work, stress management, opportunities and how they achieved their success.
Students will have the opportunity to visit the VIS. The tour will involve being instructed by many of the nation’s top coaches in areas such as Sport Psychology, Nutrition, Recovery Procedures, Strength and Conditioning and Athlete Career Education. We believe that there is a need for the students of Lavalla to participate in this activity to demonstrate the commitment and dedication required at this level. They will gain experience and knowledge that will undoubtedly improve their performance in their chosen sport.
