A unique high performance learning experience

So what is it about ISCA that makes the program such a unique experience? It is simply about offering our students a superior experience whilst learning about business, sport management and high performance sport. The innovative blend of training, coaching, learning and mentoring stand ISCA alone from its competitors. Not only do our students learn in the classroom about a contemporary evidence based approach to high performance written by industry experts, but they are also simultaneously able to gain practical hands-on experience in the gym/field with elite coaches and staff.

Our students develop equally from both a practical and academic based approach to learning so that they not only understand the what and the why behind high performance sport, but also how to apply their knowledge. ISCA offers a unique approach with field trips to sports clubs, attendance at sports seminars and summits, as well as industry experience with elite sporting teams from a wide range of sports.

Plus ISCA is not just a college, it is part of the ICMS community. With 1,300 students from more than 40 countries, ISCA sits in the perfect environment for meeting like-minded people who share the same passion and desire for sports as you do.
