Diploma of Sport Development (Football) – SIS50612

The Diploma has been designed in consultation with football industry experts to meet the demands of modern day football and its associated career opportunities.

The program merges sports science, coaching methodology, high-performance training, professional and academic development, mentoring by current professional players and business theory. In addition, the unique course design allows for an easy transition and transferability of the skills canvassed into the broader sports, fitness and recreation industries. 

FC 11 was a great learning experience on and off the field. This course has given me a lot more understanding of what jobs you can get through the industry of sport. The guest speakers we have had so far have been very interesting to see where they started and to see how they got to their current positions.
