New High-Performance Centre at St Monica’s College, Epping.17 November 2020

St Monica’s College, Epping, has launched its new High-Performance Centre at the Dalton Road Campus.

The centre offers high-level functional training facilities to elite High-Performance Pathway students who are part of the Athlete Development Program or Talent Identification and Development Program.

The centre features the latest in functional training equipment such as multiple customised strength rigs that can accommodate up to 20 students and a four-lane indoor running track that allows focused training on sprint starts, power development and weighted battle rope training.

Principal Brian Hanley said the centre is an exciting addition to the school’s Sport Academies. ‘Our college is committed to providing our developing athletes every possible support to be their best. Our Sport Academies all have elite coaches who are experts in their field and we will continue to support them with the best facilities we can provide.’

Director of sport Matt Sheens said the new centre is state-of-the-art. ‘We have created a sport-specific functional training space that will ensure that students have the best available resources to help them with their physical preparation. The facility is comparable to elite training centres seen in many professional sports and, with the support of our Academy coaches, our students will thrive.’
