Rowville Sports Academy Vision

“To be recognised by peak sporting organisations throughout Victoria, Australia and internationally as the best school based academy offering the ‘talented’ and ‘elite’ student athlete development programs in each sport.”

Rowville Sports Academy Aims

  • To provide the highest quality specialised sports programs including the best coaching, facilities and equipment.
  • To develop strong partnerships with peak sporting organisations and related sports industries.
  • To assist students to achieve an appropriate balance between their academic and sporting aspirations within a supportive educational environment.
  • To promote a “culture of excellence” with focus on academic, personal and sporting development and performance through individualised programs.

The training sessions conducted during coaching periods involve skill sessions, strength and conditioning sessions and tactical sessions. The skill sessions involve sport coaches helping students develop in their respective sport through specialised drills.

Strength and conditioning sessions involve RISE Health Group exercise physiologists and university sport science students guiding RSA students through exercises that focus on developing components of fitness including strength, power, speed, agility, balance and flexibility. Tactical sessions are less frequent but still play a vital role in sport development. These sessions are held by sport coaches and may involve video analysis in addition to strategic discussions.
