The Diploma has been designed in consultation with a large array of industry experts and leaders. Extensive research and consultation from within the high performance, fitness, professional sports club and participation and recreation sectors has been used to design a distinctive and ‘hands on’ and applied curriculum, to meet the demands of modern day sport and its associated career opportunities.

The program merges sports science, coaching methodology, high performance training, professional and academic development, mentoring by current professional players and business theory.

In addition, the unique course design allows for an easy transition and transferability of the skills canvassed into the broader sports, fitness and recreation industries.

Students have access to elite training facilities, expert coaches and industry leaders on a daily basis. Students are encouraged to maintain playing commitments in their existing club structures as this will assist them in maximising the hours of practice that will see them achieve optimal results in the overall performance that is required of elite athletes.
