At Roma Mitchell Secondary College, we believe there’s more to education than just learning.

Physical education and healthy competition are especially important for the development of young students. The privilege to engage in sporting activity and learn to interact with teammates and other competitors is a valuable skill that transfers well to real life.

This is why we consider our college of sport and fitness so important.

Roma Mitchell Secondary College – Specialist Sports Programs (SSP)

Our ‘Specialist Sports’ Programs (SSP) are designed for both elite student-athletes and players with big potential.

The sports offered in this program include:

  • Soccer
  • Cricket
  • Women’s AFL (AFLW)

Through high-quality mentoring and training programs, students in the SPP are challenged to push themselves and develop their athletic talent and become the best possible athlete they can be.

Students in the SSP will be assisted and trained by experienced coaches and sporting industry leaders. And, this assistance does not stop at just sports; despite being a college of sport and fitness, academics remain a vital part of this program. Students in the SSP are encouraged to advance in sports in addition to academic requirements and traditional schooling.

SSP offered by Roma Mitchell College of Specialist sport, is an opportunity for your child to develop, perform, and compete in their chosen sport at the highest competitive level while also undergoing school and academics.
