Athlete Development Program (ADP) 2023

The Canberra High School Athlete development program has been established to assist talented student athletes to achieve the highest level of performance in their chosen sport and to help them with their personal and educational development.

The main aims of the Athlete Development Program is to provide student athletes access to:

Sessions are run using school facilities and Aranda Oval. This means that students only miss the class of their scheduled session and do not have to allow travel time to and from their sessions. This is unique to this program and means minimal disruption to students' academic timetables.

Who is suited for the program?

Anyone can apply who displays a keen interest in a sport and wants to continue their development. Existing Canberra High students must have satisfactory school attendance and consistently attend ADP sessions.They are also expected to maintain school grades and submit all school assignments.Finally the athlete's current level of sporting achievement will also be considered when selecting successful applicants.

The program also caters for students who are doing excessive amounts of sport outside of school through The Program of Academic Excellence. The Program of Academic Excellence gives a study support line generally in the place of the students SHAPE line. During these periods are supported to complete assignments, homework or just study content taught in class.

How does the Athlete Development Program work?

What does a session look like?

Sessions are run at different time slots during week A and week B to make sure that athletes are not missing the same class each week. An example of a Soccer session line D is:

Sessions run at Aranda Oval follow a similar format but involve travel time to and from the oval with the coach, which means sessions start earlier or finish later.
