     Academy of Sport
       Based on a strong and proud sporting tradition and a history of success at the highest level, the
     Hamilton Boys’ High School Academy of Sport continues to develop fine young athletes. The role of
      the Academy, and the Junior Elite Sport Programme, is to provide our talented young sportsmen
      with the guidance, tuition and coaching they need to reach their considerable potential. Not only
      do our athletes improve at their chosen sport, they also learn the disciplines required to balance
             their sporting commitments with their academic pursuits and their personal lives.

     The Elite Sport classes at Year 9 and 10 level have helped to further develop the quality and depth of talent at Hamilton Boys’ High School. This
     programme has provided selected students with instruction in physical training methods, injury prevention and rehabilitation, sports nutrition and
     sports psychology, as well as providing regular coaching sessions in their chosen sport.
     The positive feedback from parents and students alike, suggest that the Elite Sport programme is providing an opportunity for athletes to reach
     their full potential, an opportunity that is not available elsewhere.
     A position in this programme is based on a student’s ability, potential, attitude and general citizenship within the School and he must maintain high
     standards in these areas as well as represent the school within this code in the team he is selected for, to remain within the programme.
     Parents who would like to have their son considered for a place in the Year 9 Elite Sport classes for next year should complete the Elite Sports
     section in the accompanying ‘Enrolment Form’.
     Full Elite Sport application forms will be sent out to those students who have been accepted to the School and have expressed an interest in being
     part of the programme. Students short listed for the Elite Sport programme will be required to attend trial days in November.
     Recent successes have given even greater promise for progress and achievement in the future. The School will continue in its endeavours to
     produce outstanding athletes, champion sports teams and well rounded young men.
