Approved Sports Specialist Programs

If your child is read to take up the challenge of sports, they will get more than just physical activity. Our Approved Specialist Sports Programs develops character, teaches technical skills and self-discipline, and nurtures a love of sport.

When your child graduates, they will have the opportunity and skills to pursue a career in sports science, physiotherapy, coaching, teaching, human movement, exercise science and, with determination and commitment, become a professional athlete.

These programs enable children to compete at the highest levels and develop their skills as athletes both on the field and in the classroom. In addition, they can choose to complete nationally recognised qualifications, such as umpiring, first aid, sports medicine and sports strategy.

And just to show how serious we are about developing young athletes, all programs have strong links to, or are endorsed by, peak sporting bodies.

To find out more about the programs that interest your child, including when applications open and entry processes, please contact the relevant school or check their school website for more information.

Below is a list of all the Approved Sports Specialist Programs available and the schools that offer them.

“The best thing about Bunbury Elite Sports Training or BEST is that we don’t just do sport. We learn about sport – the tactics and strategies as well as the theory which teaches us about our bodies and how to maximise our strengths. The teachers are fantastic and I am learning how to prepare, maintain my fitness levels and manage my body. BEST has contributed greatly to my success in basketball. I am currently involved in the National Intensive Training Program and am in the squad for the WA Country Under 16 State team.”
