Academy of Sport
TAFE Queensland’s Academy of Sport is a post-secondary school athlete development program. The Academy promotes excellence by equipping up and coming Queensland athletes with the right tools to pursue success in and outside the sporting arena.
TAFE Queensland facilitates the Academy program in partnership with peak sporting organisations across different parts of Queensland. Currently, the Academy is offering programs across a number of sports in Cairns and Townsville.
Professional habits and skills are developed through a holistic, performance-based sporting program developed specifically for student athletes. The educational and physical training environment is designed to advance physical and mental threshold leading to improved performance and output.
Additional to the sporting components of the Academy, student athletes will undertake a vocational or tertiary pathway suited to their career aspirations outside of the sporting arena.
