Welcome to the home of Hillcrest High Sport
We are RAISING OUR GAME in sport.
Hillcrest High School has a proud sporting and academic history. The school is renowned for producing well balanced young people and offers a large variety of sports for students to choose from. We believe engaging in sport helps our students foster interpersonal skills, intelligence, emotional confidence and creativity.
At the end of 2021, Hillcrest High School carried out a review of sport and began to create a new strategic direction for sport here at Hillcrest. Our mission is to provide a quality sporting experience for students that will enable them to grow both as an athlete and as a person through developing key attributes such as grit, determination and perseverance.
Hillcrest High School is striving to RAISE OUR GAME in recognising and supporting key sports that we will be renowned for. While all sporting codes are important to us, Hillcrest will aim to lift performance and participation in 6 key Tier One sports by implementing programmes run by high quality coaches and administrators. Each of these sports will have a Director of Code to provide essential leadership and administration; Head of Coaching to oversee coaches and implement an innovative and engaging coaching programme; and Skills Coaches to provide student athletes with quality coaching that increases skill, game awareness and confidence.
Health and wellbeing are key components for a balanced approach to life and sport and with this in mind we employ a strength and conditioning coach to promote awareness of key aspects of physical movement, injury prevention and fitness. Our on-site physiotherapist is available to work with students in their recovery from injury and our desire moving forward is to provide student athletes with a mental skills programme to enable them to be confident, happy and engaged.
These key people are overseen by the Director of Sport/Director of Coaching who provides leadership and direction of all Tier One sports programmes.
