At Robina State High School we have a proud tradition of
producing outstanding baseball players who have gone on to play in major
baseball leagues around the world including the United States, Japan and
Europe. In the past 10 years we have had 4 players from Robina High School sign
professional contracts (with the Philadelphia Phillies, Houston Astros,
Minnesota Twins and Texas Rangers) and more than 30 have transitioned to play
college baseball, with scholarships.
Baseball is a sport played globally, and students in our
program get the opportunity to play baseball in places they only ever imagined.
Biannually our team travels to Japan to experience a culture where baseball is
their most popular. We play against a variety of high school teams including
Urawa Gakuin (one of the best Baseball High Schools in all of Japan),
participate in their rigorous training sessions and attend Major League Games
and other attractions. Often we have teams from U.S.A., Taiwan and Japan who
visit us for training and games throughout the year. These opportunities enable
our players to see what it is really like to play against the best.
We also participate in the Australian High Schools’ Baseball
Championships around Australia which is always a highlight. High performing
baseball students also have opportunities to represent our school, Gold Coast,
Queensland and Australia, with baseball scouts regularly coming to watch our
players for possible inclusion at the highest level.
Student pathways are a major focus for our Baseball Academy.
Teaching staff and coaches track each student’s physical and academic
performance from Year 7 through to Year 12 and plan with them one-on-one for
their futures beyond high school.
Over the years Robina State High School has forged strong
relationships with several colleges in the US. Players who demonstrate the
qualities required to go to that next level will be recommended by our coaching
staff to a variety of colleges where scholarships are also available. This is
one of the great opportunities provided by Robina State High School’s Baseball
Each week our players participate in four baseball sessions
including athlete development sessions, field sessions and theory classes
focusing on player development. Our training sessions focus on all aspects of
the game of baseball. It is not unusual to see several groups of our players
working with coaches focusing on a variety of skill sets required to be the
best they can be.
Hitting in our purpose built batting cages, pitching in our
bullpen, fielding and throwing across our baseball diamond, running on our
athletics track, working out in our state of the art gym – all of this and more
is provided on site to all students in the Baseball Academy at Robina State
Our coaching team comprises of former professional and
college players who are now able to pass on their experiences to our current
student group. Students in the Baseball Academy also have access to and support
from professional coaches who regularly work with Major League coaches for
player development and future planning.
The school will grant some scholarships for Year Six
students upon entry into the Sports Academy Programs. Scholarships are by
written application and winners will be presented with their scholarship at
their own school graduation. The scholarship is for the year of entry only and
