ACC HIGH PERFORMANCE CLASSES – BUNDOORA CAMPUS
To be involved in ACC Sport at Years 8, 9 or 10, students are selected in an ACC High Performance Class. Selection into this class relates specifically to ACC sports and is a semester subject. If selected, students have the option of doing ACC High Performance in either Semester 1 and 2 or both. Listed below are some questions and responses that may assist in the understanding how ACC High Performance is conducted at the College.
How are students selected into an ACC High Performance class?
Selection is based on a combination of some or all of the following criteria;
- Previous ACC involvement and performance.
- Involvement and performance in regular Physical Education Classes.
- General Behaviour and ability to demonstrate mutual respect to fellow students and staff.
- Performance at selection trials.
- Ability to uphold the school’s discipline and uniform policy.
- Performance in local sporting competitions.
Selection is completed annually.
Being involved in an ACC High Performance class at one specific year level does not guarantee selection in the following year. Selection is based on the criteria listed above. This process allows developing students who may have missed selection in one year, an opportunity to be involved in the following year.
Does involvement in ACC High Performance guarantee selection into a team?
No. If a student is selected into an ACC High Performance class, then they are part of a specific sporting squad. Selection for all ACC teams will then come from these specific squads. Students who aren’t selected in the final team will be involved in a Physical Education practical class during ACC matches.
What does my son do if he is not in an ACC High Performance Class?
Student is not involved in an ACC High Performance Class at Years’ 8 or 9 will be involved in regular Physical Education classes. Student in Year 10 who are not involved in an ACC High Performance class would select another elective.
HIGH PERFORMANCE CLASSES – PRESTON CAMPUS
One of the aims of establishing High Performance classes is the select the most appropriate students for specific sports. Due to the large number of students at the Bundoora Campus, the High Performance Classes allows the College to do just that. However, as there are less students at the Preston Campus, there is no need to offer such classes as all students wanting to be involved in ACC Sport will play in at least one ACC sport per year.
