Pymble Elite Sports Women Program (PESP)

The College also offers the Pymble Elite Sportswomen’s Program (PESP) to talented athletes in Years 7 to 12 across all sports.

The program is designed to foster the development of these athletes through assistance and motivation and to help maintain a balance between high-level sporting commitments and academic studies.

The program was established in 2007 following the success of ex-Pymble student and dual-international athlete Ellyse Perry.

Recognising the need to support students who compete at elite levels to meet academic demands, the program aims to identify, nurture, recognise and support Pymble students who have unique sporting talents as part of the philosophy of a “personalised education”.

Students within the program find support through a range of channels, be it the Athlete Mentoring program where they have access to a network of older elite sportswomen, or through specialist sessions with sports nutritionists, sports psychologists or specialist field testing.

All athletes are musculoskeletally screened prior to entry into the program by qualified physiotherapists. This information is then used to design a personalised strength and conditioning program with a focus on injury prevention and management.

Our girls are consistently assisted with maintaining a schedule that balances training sessions, competitions, specialist programs and academic studies.
