Victorian Institute of Sport Excursion

On Thursday 8 February, the College’s 7A Sports Academy Class went on an excursion to the Victorian Institute of Sport (VIS). The tour was guided by Rick Wall (Marketing and Community Projects Coordinator) and Tess Lloyd, a VIS athlete and World Championship Level sailor.

During the tour we were shown a number of facilities inside the VIS, such as the gym, pool and altitude and temperature training rooms, as well as the Sports Research Laboratory. In addition to touring the facilities, students also participated in team exercises such as working as a group to each do a push-up without having their feet or knees on the floor. The boys were also placed on a Jump Mat to measure vertical extension, leg power and ‘fast feet’.

We thank the Victorian Institute of Sport for this opportunity, and hope it will enrich 7A’s learning experience. We look forward to many more excursions for our Sports Academy students in the year to come.
