Our AFL Academy Program aims to ensure that every student achieves high level of success whether that be at a state, regional or club level with the overall goal of getting students drafted or continue playing high level football once exited school. We recently celebrated previous students, boys and girls being drafted to the Gold Coast Suns.
Our program priorities are; decision based training that forces training of skills under pressure, compulsory fitness testing regularly, regular strength and conditioning sessions, explicit training of game strategy sessions & high expectations with clear consequences for not meeting them. We stress that Helensvale AFL students are humble and respectful who strive to be good people at all times.
The Helensvale SHS Football Academy, proudly supported by A-League Club, the Brisbane Roar, supports students athletic development through exposure to high quality training and regular competition in both Football and Futsal tournaments. Our inclusion in the elite National Premier League (NPL) Style, Schools Premier League (SPL), sets us apart from other schools across the region, providing regular, high level competition for both male and female students throughout the year.
The program aims to develop players that are not only technically and tactically proficient, but are good decision-making players that have a highly developed knowledge of the game. Comprehension of the flexibilities of the game and the roles and responsibilities of individual positions within the game, will ensure our players have the ability to cope at the next level of Football. This approach has resulted in Helensvale SHS reaching the Queensland State Final in the coveted Bill Turner competition (Final 8 in Australia), winning multiple National & State Futsal Titles, ultimately establishing itself as a dominant footballing school in the South East Queensland Region.
The Netball program offers athletes the opportunity to train under the guidance of
professionals and develop in an environment that emulates the elite. Our programming is split over three days covering: Strength & Conditioning, Skills and Game Play with a theory lesson focusing on game tactics and body insurance.
We uphold high expectations on the court and while ensuring our athletes are achieving on the academic stage as well. Our students take pride in all aspects of their schooling whilst upholding the school values; Respect, Responsibility and Resilience. Past students of our program include Reilley Batcheldor (Australian U/17, Elite Development Squad) Leah Pue (Queensland 17's & 19's) and Chanel Gomes (Australian Diamond).
