What is the Targeted Sports Program?

The Terrigal High School Targeted Sports Program is embedded into the framework and curriculum of Terrigal and it is open to any student enrolled at the school in Years 7 & 8. Five sports are currently offered - Netball, Rugby League, Touch Football, Football (Soccer) and Basketball.

What do I do in the Targeted Sports Program?

Students in the Targeted Sports Program participate in TSP training every Wednesday morning between 9.10am-11.10am. Each sport has developed a term by term program that aims to build up individual’s skills through cross training techniques as well as sport specific sessions.

If I am accepted in the program, what are the expectations?

Students who are selected into the Targeted Sports Program would be expected to be playing their chosen sport in a local competition. Successful applicants are required to pay a fee and be available to represent Terrigal High School in any Tuggerah Lakes Zone, Sydney North, New South Wales Combined High Schools, New South Wales All Schools Carnival, game or competition for which they are selected. It is compulsory that Targeted Sports Program students attend and compete to the best of their ability at school Athletics, Cross Country and Swimming carnivals. Students gaining selection into future representative teams will be expected to meet relevant obligations.

Students in the program are required to demonstrate a satisfactory level of achievement in all of their subjects. Misbehaviour, or failure to meet subject requirements, i.e. assessment work/homework, may result in removal of the student from the program. Poor behaviour will not be tolerated and student’s progress at school will be evaluated on a regular basis. Targeted Sports students who have been suspended from school will automatically be suspended from the Targeted Sports Program for one week. Repeat offenders will face removal from the program.
