Students will complete the VET Certificate II in Community Recreation in year 11. The Common and Stream Core units of competency are consistent for all students. The Sports General students will undertake a variety of elective units to complete Certificate II. These units are designed for a career pathway into Sports Medicine and allied fields of employment in the Sports and Recreation sector. In year 12 VCE VET Sport and Recreation students will be offered the focus electives of Fitness, Sport or Aquatics as a part of the course. The year 11 units will prepare the sports general students wonderfully for the Fitness focus elective.

During the time when students in the pillar sports will be involved in high performance training, the sports general class will complete the Sports First Aid Course, the Level One Sports Trainer Course (Year 11) and selected sections from the Level Two Sports Trainer Course (Year 12). These courses are run by Sports Medicine Australia. Students will also access the extensive weight training facilities to maintain and improve their own fitness as well as learning to apply this knowledge and practice to sports training. As a part of the students’ assessment they will be allocated to assist as sports trainers in the Sports Academy and VSSSA sporting events. Students are also strongly encouraged to compete in the wide range of sports offered in the VSSSA.
