Development & Education

Australia’s excellence in sport has come from a significant commitment and investment to educate people associated with the delivery of sport.

Businesses, academies and institutes, who are leaders in sports education where students can learn and develop successful careers in the sports industry, are located here in the Park.

Programs for players, administrators, coaches, referees, medical practitioners and sport scientists exist through secondary and tertiary systems, vocational and specialist courses.

Our Masterplan 2030 plans to have a sports education campus – an active precinct incorporating educational uses, retail facilities and student accommodation.

Under Master Plan 2030, the blueprint for Sydney Olympic Park’s future development, the Athletic and Aquatic Centre venues will be integrated with a series of new streets and buildings creating a vibrant sports and education campus precinct. The sporting venues will continue to operate on a daily and special-event basis, helping to define this unique place well into the future.
