Semester 1 - Aboriginal Power Cup (10 Stage 1 Credits) Aimed at both male and female students the Aboriginal Power Cup (APC) subject offers a dynamic curriculum which culminates in the annual Aboriginal Power Cup Carnival. The three-day event focuses on cultural activities, health, career and tertiary pathways and the much hyped 9-A-Side football competition which is hotly contested by each of our academies. Each academy receives expert coaching, mentoring and support by players from the Port Adelaide Power Football Club and in the lead up to the carnival students are required to work both individually and in teams to complete a series of set curriculum tasks. All tasks are judged on a points system with the highest ranked male and female teams earning the right to play off in the Grand Final at AAMI stadium before a Port Adelaide Power home game.

This subject has been developed to follow on from the Aboriginal Power Cup. Like the APC, this subject culminates in a two-day sporting carnival where academies will compete in a round-robin format to claim the SAASTA Shield. In the lead up to the carnival students receive advice, mentoring and coaching from industry experts to develop their skills in a variety of sports, recreational and health activities.
