Sporting Academies | Coomera Anglican College

Inspiring excellence

Educating the 'whole student' - mind, heart, soul and strength is very important to us here at Coomera Anglican College. 

Sport promotes the potential for lifelong learning participation in physical activity. At the College we know that by engaging students in sports we provide them with a sense of community and social connectedness, help develop motor skills, movement competence and positive emotional health. 

The College has an impressive history in Sport and has achieved much success at local, regional, State and National levels; while also producing Sporting Greats as alumni

As part of our continuing commitment towards inspiring excellence, the College provides students with an elite based training environment through our Football (incl Futsal), Netball and Basketball Academy Programmes. Our world-class Sporting Academies have been developed based on creating the right environment for success, educating the whole student, creating partnerships and pathways and ensuring great coaches and mentors are available to our students. Acceptance into the Sporting academies is based on the student's ability and commitment. All applications for Sporting Academies is completed online. Applicants must be current student of Coomera Anglican College.

Scholarships are available for students from Year 7 to year 12 based on their sporting achievements. 

Flexibility  Strength  Agility 

Flexibility, Strength and Agility are at the core of our training programmes. Focus is placed on high performance, strength and conditioning and injury prevention.  

These core elements are delivered through Yoga Fusion, tailored strength and conditioning  sessions within our High Performance Centre and a unique Fast Feet Programme.

Our Fast Feet Programme is essential in developing our athletes to their fulfil potential. As a core component it is integrated into warm ups, training sessions and used in standalone drills  to create improved reaction times, better coordination and formulated step patters, acceleration  and the ability to convert power more effectively into forward momentum while still maintaining agility and balance. 

High Performance Centre 

The High Performance Centre is a focal point of the Sports Academies. Dedicated expert staff are on hand to develop individualised programmes for students based on their ability, capacity and sporting goals. The High Performance Centre is used in conjunction with the Sporting Academies, Flexibility, Strength and Agility Programme and our strategic sporting partnerships. More information on the High Performance Centre and it’s facilities can be located here. 

Strategic Sporting Partnerships

Coomera Anglican College has entered into a number of strategic partnerships with a number of high quality sporting organisations. As we educate the ‘whole person’ through our programme, partnerships allow for peer mentoring, career pathways, skills enhancement and exposure to different levels within their sporting field. Working in partnership with a number of sporting bodies allows for further development and enhancement of our students skills and abilities and helps to support and strength local competition.
