Essentially, what we're doing, in the past… we've done some testing to find out baselines. fitness and strength baselines. We take that sort of data and then start creating training programs which moves them into the direction they want to be as an athlete so they can start understanding how to train other people to work with their skill sets.

Monique Fitzgerald, Course Coordinator

Throughout this course the students get an opportunity to do a number of work integrated learning and practical placement opportunities in the sport industry. In particular, recently we've been out to RecWest Braybrook which is YMCA and the students have been running a basketball program there for adults with an intellectual disability. So the students have had experience in coaching, in umpiring, in during the warm-ups and scoring and they're basically running that full program for the students.

Georgia Powning, Student

Today we did a session with one of kids it with one of Chris's kids. We had to use ropes, we had to do planks, we had to do weights and do like a plank and do the other stuff. My favourite one is doing the rope, so like using the two ropes at the same time with my hand. Hoping to get a job like at a sport shop somewhere close where I live or maybe do like a job at a school like being a sports teacher on a fitness teacher.
