The school organises Elite Sports Camps, to which anybody is welcome. These camps are excellent for skill acquisition and fun, but they also double as try outs for those seeking places in RSA. We hold mostly three day camps in both the Term 1 and Term 2 holidays (although the third day of term 1 camps is held over until Term 2). Whether or not students obtain places in the Rowville Sports Academy these camps are excellent sport education opportunities. On the other hand, it is most unlikely that students will get a position in RSA without attending one or more of these camps.
The camp will expose your child (children) to coaches at a level most have not previously experienced. Our coaches all have elite backgrounds:
- Dean Kinsman was previously the Head Coach of Basketball for the Australian Institute of Sport, Women’s program.
- Peter Bundy has coached in the Volleyball State League for many years.
- Tim Wendel was previously the Victorian Golf State Development Coach.
- Ian Greener was Head Coach of Football (Soccer) at the Victorian Institute of Sport.
- Roselee Jencke joined RSA this year after eleven years as Head Coach of the Queensland Firebirds in the National Netball Super league.
- Darren Bewick is a two time premiership player with Essendon FC.
- Darren Berry was selected on an Ashes tour with the Australian Cricket Team and has coached internationally for Pakistan as well domestically with South Australia.
- AJ Muscillo is one of a small elite group in Australia who have Level 3 tennis coaching credentials.
