Sports Excellence

The Foundation Level of the Girton Sports Excellence Programme is informed by the latest study of human locomotion which shows that how well we move is a function of appropriate diaphragm activation, along with the integration of information coming from our eye and inner ear systems.

Any student in Years 5 to 8 can apply to enter the Girton Sports Excellence Foundation Programme.

Applicants simply need to have a passion for sport and a desire to be part of a programme that is focussed on the acquisition of correct functionality of movement to optimise strength and performance.

Sports Excellence sessions will be capped at 20 students per session to ensure the physical development of each student is not compromised, With decreased numbers in each group athletes will receive the support and guidance they need to perform exercises proficiently.

Students can join at any stage; however, they will be provided with exercises that are appropriate for their skill set. The progressions that are followed are methodically completed to ensure students increase their understanding of, and competency in, the movements. Students are only prescribed increasingly difficult exercises when deemed capable, and this approach is at the core of the programme.

New students to the program will be charged the same annual fee as last year of approximately $200, whilst students continuing their involvement will be charged $230 annually.

To register your child’s interest please complete below form by the 27th of November.

 

Kind regards,
Ben Furphy
