Robina Sports Academy Overview


Robina Sports Academy was created to deliver our student-athletes the opportunity to achieve at the highest level in their chosen sporting domain while maintaining a quality education.

Through the guidance of our experienced staff, expert coaching panel and outstanding training facilities, Robina High students are afforded the occasion to succeed in all facets of their schooling.

Our Vision is to cultivate a cutting edge sporting institution where high performance and success are demonstrated across all aspects of each student-athletes’ growth at Robina State High School. In order to achieve this we follow these six key principles:

  • Long-Term Physical Development

  • Individualised Tracking

  • Structured Pathways

  • Athlete Wellbeing

  • Academic Curriculum

  • Good Sportspeople

We offer fully fledged programs in Golf, Futsal/Football and Baseball and have recently introduced General Sports Academy Classes in each year level. Students participate in as many as four sessions specific to their activity each week with other like-minded students. Often we have several of our Sports Programs running at the same time which creates a positive culture for all students involved in the Robina Sports Academy.

A major focus of the Robina Sports Academy is student pathways. Not only do our staff regularly work with students regarding their skills and athletic development, goal setting, sport psychology, etc. but also their subject selections, academic reports and future career path. The tracking of student results in their sport and in the classroom enables our students to achieve quality outcomes. We strongly encourage our students to use their sporting prowess to enhance their future opportunities.
