Sport and Fitness

Sport is an integral part of Gymea Technology High School. Our school provides a variety of exciting opportunities for students to participate in weekly sport and representative sport.

Weekly Sport

In all years students make sport selections each term and have the option of participating in recreation sports run outside of school. The available sport choices for terms 3 and four 2017 are listed below.

Personal Training and Coaching

The Personal Training and Coaching course caters for a wide range of student needs. It can assist students in developing:

  • the qualities of a discerning consumer and an intelligent critic of physical activity and sport
  • high levels of performance skill in particular sports
  • the capacity to adopt administrative roles in community sport and recreation
  • the skills of coach, personal trainer, first aid officer, referee and fitness leader. In the context of this course it may be possible for students to acquire recognised qualifications in these areas.

It is also a course of relevance to all students as it reinforces the importance of being active and helps to develop a repertoire of skills that will assist students to remain active throughout their lives.

The course features a highly practical focus: physical activity being both an area of study and a medium for learning. All students should be given significant opportunities to apply theoretical understanding to practical situations that are socially and culturally relevant and gender inclusive. School programs should provide a balance between offering experience in a range of movement contexts and the opportunity to specialise in a specific sport or recreational activity.

The areas of sports science, physical education and human movement present viable post-school study and career pathways. This course provides a sound platform for further study and may offer some credit transfer opportunities into TAFE.

The Personal Training and coaching industry is a major growth industry and in this course students will gain an understanding and appreciation of the vocational possibilities in this area.
