It is widely recognised that Sport, Health and Physical Education play an important part in an individual’s holistic growth and development. Cathedral College Wangaratta’s Sports Academy program will offer students pursuing the opportunity to develop these skills further. The CCW Athlete Development Program is currently partnering with the Murray Bushrangers in order to cater for AFL athletes. In 2023, the program intends to broaden its offerings and include other sporting pursuits. The program aims to assist talented student-athletes to achieve at the highest levels of performance in their various sports and to help them with their personal education and vocational development.
