Development Academy

The Brisbane Athlete Development Academy is a structured athlete development program for those in grade 9 and above. The program includes athletes engaged in any sport.

When your young Athlete joins the academy, they will be connected to and supported by Brisbane’s best athletes and support professionals. Our structured program includes school holiday workshops and lectures that cover every aspect of a sporting life.  They include workshops in:

  • Skills;
  • Running and Speed;
  • Strength;
  • Sports Psychology;
  • Injury prevention;
  • Addiction;
  • Anti-Doping; and
  • General life skills and coping mechanisms

Young athletes often show promise in their chosen sport however as they transition through stages of their life they often fall away from pursuing a career in their sport. The main reason is that they leave school and in doing so, they leave a structure that has kept them playing. When they turn 18 they are faced with many distractions that are not conducive to a career in sport. They also deal with significant personal issues as they discover their own identity in life.  

Having your young athlete supported and mentored by Brisbane bests improves their chance of staying in sport and being successful.
