High Performance Sport
Development and High Performance Programmes
Kristin's Development and High Performance programmes utilise a holistic approach to identify, nurture and develop athletes to their full potential, whilst providing opportunities to train and be mentored in an environment of excellence by top quality coaches and mentors.
Football, Hockey and Netball offer Development and/or High Performance programmes, enabling elite athletes to excel in a controlled and structured programme with other athletes of a similar level.
These programmes provide pathways for the development of athletes from Junior School through to the Senior School. They and focus on:
- Skill development
- Fitness testing and monitoring
- Goal setting
- Sports science
- Time management
Whilst the programmes are code specific, additional workshops and clinics may be run with guest speakers from various high profile sporting organisations throughout the year.

Sporting and Academic Excellence
In addition to the Development and High Performance programmes available at Kristin, we also offer the Sports Plus (Middle School) and Individual Programme for High Achievers (IPHA - Senior School) to help our elite athletes manage school work effectively, without compromising their sporting objectives. These programmes help and encourage our students to succeed on and off the sporting stage.
