Excellence In Sport Program (EIS)

The Lilydale High School Excellence in Sport Program allows students to combine their studies and intensive training in Basketball, Netball and Australian Rules Football.  Students integrate their training commitment into the normal school program, enabling them to excel in their studies and chosen sport.

The Excellence in Sport Program is appropriate for students who wish to develop their skills to the best of their ability, or for athletes who are already training at an elite level.

Students will participate in intensive training sessions designed to develop their skill and fitness levels, including resistance training specific to their sport.  These sessions will be conducted by experienced teachers with specialist knowledge in the student’s preferred sport. Students will have the opportunity to participate in sporting competitions exclusive to the Excellence in Sport Program
