ISCA established their North-West Sydney Campus at Valentine Sports Park in early 2023, offering both a Diploma of Sports Management (High Performance) & online Certificate of Sport Management.

The innovative program provides students with the opportunity to turn their love of sport into a comprehensive understanding of the global professional sports industry. Developed by leading industry professionals, the Diploma provides students an innovative blend of training, coaching, learning, and mentoring.

The new campus at Valentine Sports Park, the Home of Football in NSW, provides an exciting opportunity for footballers looking to expand their knowledge and take their first step into a career in football or, more broadly, in sport.

The Diploma acts as a stand-alone qualification, but also provides a pathway into a bachelor program at the International College of Management Sydney (ICMS). Former ISCA students have also progressed into Bachelor-level studies at other Universities within Sydney.

Football NSW CEO John Tsatsimas was delighted to be working with an organisation passionate about football and the wider sporting industry.

“We’re excited to be partnering with ISCA as our official Education Partner,” he said.

“ISCA provides a great fusion of high-performance training with sports business principles, beneficial to anyone wishing to start their career within the sporting industry.

“We look forward to welcoming some of the next generation of sporting professionals to Valentine Sports Park over the coming years.”

ISCA General Manager Ian Evans believes the offering of first-class sporting facilities and coaching staff, coupled with a high-quality academic program, will be a game-changer for young athletes.

“ISCA is positioned as an alternative pathway for Year 12 students who love sport but are just not sure what area of sport to focus on,” Evans said.

“Being non-ATAR based, and offering a blend of business, high performance and sport management subjects, we want to encourage and work with school-leavers who are interested in sport business, coaching, and athletic development, but are unsure about what to focus on in future years, whether it be employment, further study or continuing to play the sport they love.”
