The Barkly Region Sport Education Coordinator facilitates sport and physical activities for schools in Tennant Creek and surrounding communities. Programs include interschool events for groups of schools as well as tailored programs for remote schools, catering for primary and high school aged students. The Sport Education Coordinator also facilitates selections for teams and squads to participate in the School of Sport Education NT 12 Years & Under and 15 Years and Under programs.
School visits and interschool Sports Programs
The focus for all programs is participation and skill development across a range of sports and physical activities. “Come and Try’’ philosophy is promoted throughout all programs with the inclusion of competition between schools. The visiting school program is also an opportunity for teachers in community schools to participate in peer coaching to use the programs, games and sports in their ongoing Health and Physical Education Programs.
Barkly Region representation in School of Sport Education NT Inter-region Programs
Barkly region teams or squads are selected to attend SSNT Championships or Development Camps for Interstate selection. To be selected, students must have participated in the sport at regional level and developed an appropriate level of knowledge and skills in the sport.
