The Top End Region Sport Education Coordinator facilitates interschool sports days for Palmerston local schools and regional remote schools. 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 the interschool sports programs is participation at all levels. “Come and Try’ philosophy is promoted throughout all programs with the inclusion of competition between schools. Palmerston primary, middle and senior secondary schools are able to participate full day and half day carnivals/round robin days in a range of sports.
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.
Top End Region representation in School of Sport Education NT Programs
Top End 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.
All teams and squads rely on volunteer team coaches and managers to train students and supervise travelling groups.
