How does my Program prepare me for creating industry opportunities?

High performance Basketball is a global, multi-billion dollar enterprise that provides employment opportunities for a range of professions.

At the heart of this industry is the conditioning of the athletes, with the aim of optimising individual and team performance for successful outcomes. The superior participants in this industry know how to assess athletic performance and are able to apply this knowledge to the planning and delivery of meaningful interventions for athletes to enhance performance, but also to mitigate the likelihood of injury and illness.

The SIS50612 Diploma of Sport Development (Basketball) qualification provides a detailed knowledge and practical skills based program relevant to athletic performance, from the physiological, psychological, biomechanical, nutritional and skill-based perspectives. This Program provides graduates with the skill training for elite level practice in high performance Basketball and analysis, athlete development programming and an introduction to the relevant exercise and sport science theory and the business of high performance Basketball.

Students must complete 100 hours of appropriate professional experience (practicum), with accurate record-keeping, as part of course accreditation requirements. Students are placed in a range of industry settings to integrate the course theory that you learn with practical workplace experiences. These outcomes will provide launch pads into playing, coaching, physical programming, basketball business and athlete support services in performance basketball environments.

Graduates of this qualification become eligible to apply for admission to undergraduate studies in High Performance Sport, Human Movement, Psychology, Physical Education and Business. We encourage all our Alumni to take advantage of our local and international industry network for assisting you after your graduation.

*Human Movement pathway provides options for further study including: Exercise and Sport Science, Dietetics, Psychology, Counselling and Physiotherapy to name a few.

What is the desired outcome of an athlete development program?
It is to put us on the pathway to reaching our potential. To do this, we must first commit to becoming better versions of ourselves. To become better, we must challenge ourselves. Committing to the challenge is the key that unlocks your potential. For optimum benefits, such Programs MUST be individualised.

Your Program must be tailored to you. Why? Because it is about achieving your potential, not someone else’s. To do this effectively, we build from the fundamental building blocks of athletic performance: your brain and your body. We then connect these human elements to your athletic performance.
