Each year, boys have to apply online for a position in the Institute. The main part of the selection process involves sport-specific skills assessments. These will be undertaken by Sacred Heart College teachers involved with the Sports Institute, and a selection of outside coaches. There may also be some fitness testing completed as well.

Online applications open in July for the following year. After applications are received, students are invited to the College for trials in September. Boys selected to attend the assessment day will receive a formal invitation. Those who are not asked in for the assessment day will also be contacted, and they are welcome to submit another application the following year.

Applications for 2019 are now closed.

Communicating with parents

Communication with parents is primarily though the mid-year and end-of-year reports. Parents also have the opportunity to speak with Sports Institute coaches at the Parent/Teacher interviews held in Term 2 each year.

Sports Institute Contract

With acceptance into the Sports Institute, each student and their parents will agree to abide by the Sports Institute Contract. The agreement of this contract ensures boys are committed to the Sports Institute and to representing Sacred Heart College first and foremost.
