Talented Athlete Program

Chatham High School’s Talented Athlete Program (TAP) is a dedicated initiative designed to support and assist high performing, student-athletes on their elite sporting journey. The goal is to educate students on balancing their sporting commitments, academic performance, and personal life, highlighting the importance of their physical and mental well-being.

The program provides talented students from the Manning Valley Region with access to elite coaching and an academic framework allowing them to reach both their academic and sporting potential.

TAP students are tutored by staff with extensive experience in youth mentoring and coaching within a specific sport. Currently the program provides students with access to qualified Rugby League, Basketball and Cheer coaches. Students exhibiting talent in other sports are strongly encouraged to apply as program focuses are relevant to all sports.

The objective of the program is to help each one of our talented students develop the skills and mental fortitude to achieve their full potential, not only in their sport but also their academic and personal lives. We seek to provide young student athletes with the skills to cope with adversity, develop a growth mindset and problem-solving abilities while strengthening their self-belief.
