Knox has a long tradition of developing and supporting sportsmen who go on to professional careers at a national and international level.

Knox’s PEAK program has been designed to support and assist high performing student-athletes considering a career in elite sport to achieve excellence in their chosen sport, while achieving their best academically.

Benefits

Students who are part of the PEAK Program are supported through initiatives including:

  • Individual mentoring – personalised one-on-one mentoring by Knox high performance coaches with international and elite domestic level playing and coaching experience.
  • Specialised support – including the development of Individual Performance Plan (IPP) tailored to the student’s individual needs and the demands of their sport. This includes support with goal-setting, external program and pathway benchmarking and support with overall wellbeing.
  • Keynote speakers – Subject matter experts will speak to students a number of times each term on topics including academic, physical, personal development and social-emotional wellbeing
  • Workshops – regular small-group workshops to further enhance each student-athlete’s skills and learning capabilities.
