Kelvin Grove State College (KGSC) has a rich history of sporting excellence, dating back to the inception of the Queensland Golf School of Excellence, developed in Partnership with Golf Queensland in 1986. Since then, the College has expanded the programs to include the Queensland Tennis School of Excellence, the Football School of Excellence, and most recently in 2016 the Volleyball School of Excellence.
Our sports excellence programs provide students with the opportunity to combine the study of their chosen sport at a high level, with their academic studies. Our programs are among the top sports programs in the country, in terms of currency, program components, success and student achievement.
Students are accepted into our programs through an application and trial process, and involvement in the programs will attract an additional cost. Program Coordinators can be contacted for details on the most up to date fee structure.
Applications for positions in Year 7 2023 Sporting Excellence programs close July 29 2022. The trial will be on Thursday, 11 August 2022.
Excellent levels of effort and behaviour must be consistently demonstrated in school reports, and applicants should be playing at minimum BYPL standard at club. Successful applicants must also meet the current high standards in footballing ability set in Football Excellence.
