This award winning program is a curriculum-based initiative that utilises a reward and incentive system, where students are required to maintain high levels of attendance and behaviour to remain in the program.
The program is designed to encourage school attendance and engagement, develop individual self esteem, demonstrate the importance of goals and aspiration, explore the notions of team work and leadership, demonstrate the importance of health and wellbeing and enable students to contribute back to their local community.
The program not only achieves these outcomes it also places a strong focus on a comprehensive three hour a week AFL curriculum linked to the Health and Physical Education Learning Outcomes. This allows students to be extended in the physical, technical, tactical and mental components of the sport. Participants in the program are encouraged to apply their acquired skills within the community, benefiting local sporting organisations with qualified coaches, umpired, trainers and administrators.
Students in year 11 and 12 complete nationally accredited certificates in Sport & Recreation. This enables students to fast-track into tertiary education and places them in an advantaged position for tertiary entrance.
There are many co-curricular opportunities that participants can gain access to through their involvement in the program. These include:
- Interstate Football Tour to Melbourne, the home of AFL
- West Coast Eagles player visits
- Camps and Carnivals in Hedland, Newman, Broome and Perth
- Participate in a Curtain Raiser match prior to the West Coast Eagles
- AUSKICK coaching and umpiring
- Fundraising events and opportunities
