“I am thrilled to be joined by such a high-quality group of industry experts who will help to deliver our brand-new Institute program in 2017” said Peggy O’Neal, Richmond President.  “We look forward to helping to develop our future industry leaders, many of whom will have aspirations to work in the sports and fitness industries”.

With a strong focus on experiential learning, students will be provided with unrivalled practical opportunities that focus on the development of skills that assist with education and future employment as well as athlete and coaching performance.

The Institute will be located on the corner of Church and Swan St’s in Richmond, where class room facilities are co-located with gymnasium facilities for the students to move between practical and theoretical content delivery.  Facilities at both the Richmond Football Club and Swinburne University of Technology will also be used throughout the program.
