The Sports Development Program (SDP) is a challenge HPE program that exposes students to fitness programs, nutrition, coaching techniques, sports science, sports psychology and a range of sporting skills. Sports may include, but are not restricted to swimming, athletics, basketball, touch and soccer. Students are challenged through various experiences in these sports and other activities in pursuit of sporting excellence in a supportive environment.
Expectations for SDP
Students accepted into the Sports Development Program are expected to participate in all school sporting carnivals (swimming, cross country, athletics) and represent Kepnock State High School if selected to be a member of the school swimming, athletics or cross country team. Students will also represent the school in both the winter and summer sports on offer. Students are to maintain high standards for academic achievement, behaviour and effort. There are regular student review points across Years 7and 8 where every SDP student's continued participation in the program is evaluated. If students are not meeting the expectations of the program they may be asked to relinquish their position to higher performing students in non-SDP classes.
Entry into the SDP program is selective. There is only one class (max. 28 students). Students wanting to apply for a place in the Sports Development Program need to complete an application process.
