Specialist Sport

The Ballarat High School Specialist Sport program is an integrated academic and sporting program that focuses on the development of skills in AFL, Basketball, Soccer, Badminton, Netball and Athletics. 

The School offers the students in the program an opportunity to continue their education while at the same time, receiving specialist coaching in their chosen sport. There is an expectation that the Specialist Sport students will act as positive role models for other students within the School and wider community.

The Specialist Sport program runs from Year 7 to Year 11. It includes a range of specialist parent evenings and a focus on developing all the talents and abilities of our students. Through the senior years there is a particular focus on introducing the students to the sporting industry through the completetion of a VET Sport and Recreation Certificate.


“Our vision is to be recognised as a sporting development program within the Ballarat community and state wide, providing students with a pathway towards sporting excellence and career opportunities.”
