Endeavour Sports High School to open new high performance unit

Endeavour Sports High School at Caringbah will officially open its new high performance unit this week.

The school has about 600 students enrolled in its targeted sports program and principal James Kozlowski said the new unit would be part of the school's Sports Science Centre.

"Our new high performance unit will provide our 600 plus student athletes with vital sports-related services, including physiotherapy, podiatry, dietitian advice, massage therapy, sports psychology and sports medicine," he said.

"This new facility will complement the strength and conditioning that takes place in our adjoining fitness centre for all of our student athletes."

The school has partnered with Sydney University as part of longitudinal study of the physical development of its student athletes.

"All combine to ensure that Endeavour's targeted sports program is at the cutting edge of sports science for junior athletes," Mr Kozlowski said.

Wednesday's launch will be attended by Olympians and former Endeavour students Kaarle McCulloch and Craig Stevens and representatives from each of the health professional organisations that will make up the unit.
