Shooting Goals Program places a strong focus on a comprehensive three hour a week netball 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 netball.

Participants in the program are encouraged to apply their acquired skills within the community, benefiting local sporting organisations with qualified coaches, umpires, 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 access through their involvement in the Shooting Goals Program. These include:

  • International Tour to New Zealand
  • Camps and carnivals within the Pilbara, based in Hedland, Newman and Broome
  • Incentive trips to reward outstanding achievement
  • Competitions against other netball schools
  • Community Involvement through Net Set Go coaching and umpiring
  • Umpiring at Port Hedland Netball Association local competitions and events
  • Fundraising events and opportunities
