ATHLETICS PROGRAM

In 2015 Dromana College introduced an Athletics Squad that took place every Tuesday and Wednesday morning before school. The Athletics Squad proved to be a resounding success and in 2016 Dromana College is formalising the Athletics Squad as an enhancement program. The Athletics Squad aims to:

  • Engage students in physical activity as a way to promote healthy lifestyles, relationships and mental health.
  • Give students access to specialised coaching across a range of athletic disciplines and, as a consequence, improve student’s performance
  • Provide students with opportunities to access external resources within the field of athletics.
  • Cater to students of all abilities
  • Provide students with the opportunity to experience elite level training, strength and conditioning and to use this as a means to build persistence, resilience and confidence
  • Give students an awareness of the importance of inclusiveness 

The Athletics Squad caters to all ability levels and we do not limit the number of spaces available. If more students want to participate in the program then Dromana College are committed to running extra sessions and employing extra coaches to meet this demand and to ensure that any child who wishes to participate is able to.
