The Big Rivers Region Sport Education Coordinator facilitates sport and physical activities for schools in Katherine 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 trials, selections and training 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.
Katherine primary schools are able to participate in weekly interschool sport sessions focusing on a number of sports throughout the year. Additional full day and half day carnivals/round robin days are facilitated for primary and secondary students.
The visiting school program is also an opportunity for teachers in remote schools to participate in peer coaching to use the programs, games and sports in their ongoing Health and Physical Education Programs
Big Rivers Region representation in School of Sport Education NT Programs
Big Rivers region teams or squads are selected to attend SSENT 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.
All teams and squads rely on volunteer team coaches and managers to train students and supervise travelling groups.
