South East Sports Academy


South East Sports Academy (SESA) is a new regional academy of sport in NSW that is being administered by the Office of Sport.

SESA will provide development opportunities for talented athletes and coaches in the South East area of NSW with the boundaries aligned with the Canberra Region Joint Organisation of Councils. 

There are 11 regional academies of sport in NSW. Regional Academies of Sport provide opportunities for talented young athletes to develop both on and off the field in their home environment.

SESA sport programs will be aligned to National Sport Organisation pathways, endorsed by the relevant State Sporting Organisation. Athletes will be provided with holistic programs that include technical and skill development, physical preparation and personal development components. 

SESA programs will reflect latest research on identification and development of athletes and utilise available platforms. 

SESA will develop coaches throughout the area in recognition of their importance to the overall development of sport across the region.
