High Performance Sport Program


With self-discipline, motivation and attitude almost anything is possible. The High Performance Sport Program seeks to nurture the physical talents of Iona College students, whilst supporting academic potential.

Your talent is God's gift to you.  What you do with it, is your gift back to God.


It identifies, guides and fosters the development of high performing athletes and well-rounded men.

Underpinning the program is the development of the student as a lifelong learner who is committed to physical activity, has healthy eating habits, is resilient, motivated to achieving their potential and prepared to make a difference in the community.

The program provides students with planning tools for weekly, term and annual timetables. It enables students  to prepare for assessments while maintaining a balance between schoolwork and training.
