Warrandyte High School has a successful and vibrant Sports Academy!
Our Sports Academy is open to all students, girls and boys, from Year 7 through to and including Year 10. Students can choose to participate in either the Sports Academy Basketball Program or the Sports Academy AFL Program.
Both programs are run by a professional and externally appointed coach. Just under 5 hours each week is devoted towards both the AFL and the Basketball Academy – now that is intensive!
Both the Basketball Program and the AFL Program are intensive skill building and fitness training programs happening right here at Warrandyte High School.
Places for 2022 are no longer available.
Expressions of interest for both the 2023 Sports Academy Basketball Program and the 2023 Sports Academy AFL Program are OPEN NOW and close on September 15, 2022.
To be eligible, students must be enrolled at Warrandyte High School or enrolled to commence at Warrandyte High School in 2023!
To register your expression of interest for the 2023 Sports Academy or if you have any questions, please email, Assistant Principal, Joseph Caruana:
