Sandringham College has established a Sports Academy Program in Years 7 to 12 across all sites of the College.
The program aims to develop students’ sporting abilities through a specialised and accelerated curriculum, with a focus on Long Term Athlete Development.
Students in Years 7,8 and 9 will adopt the “Training to Train” model, and Years 10,11 and 12 will use the philosophy of “Training to Compete”.

Chris Matthews is coming on board to further support and extend our Sports Academy students. Chris has a long history in the areas of strength and conditioning and athlete development. He has worked with organisations such as the Melbourne Storm, Vic Metro U16 and U18 National Teams, the Sandringham Zebras to name but a few. His athlete development model works perfectly with the Training to Train and Training to Compete ethos of our Sports Academy. All of our students will meet Chris in the week commencing 2nd May and we look forward to a demanding and rewarding program.
