Academy teams also have the opportunity to travel overseas on school sports tours to New Zealand and Unites States of America. These international excursions provide a valuable experience to educate, develop teamwork and camaraderie, while taking advantage of other perspectives on coaching and tactics. Students also have the option to participate in a 5-day excursion to the Australian Institute of Sports in Canberra to be trained by some of Australia’s elite sporting athletes and coaches.
