Students love being able to learn at their own pace and can go back to the video content NEXA have created.

Leigh Charlsworth is the SIS coordinator at Seaview high school who have been working together with NEXA Sports Performance to assist in delivering curriculum development.

Teachers can say one thing but when a professional in the industry says the same thing, it resonates more.

Sa Danh, Specialist Programs Co-ordinator from Seaton high school explains the benefit of having NEXA come and compliment the work they already do with their students.

"It complements us in what we can do as educators." - Sa Danh, Seaton High School
Athlete & careers pathway program

Many high-school-aged students either want to become a professional athlete, or have a career in sport working alongside elite athletes.

But the majority of young athletes don’t know the steps that need to be taken in order to get to the elite level as an athlete. Others, who want to work in sport, often have a limited understanding of the sports industry and the pathways that need to be taken in order to work in different professions, with athletes. That’s where NEXA comes in.


A greater understanding of requirements and options

At NEXA, we’ve developed our Athlete & Careers Pathway Program to help students get a greater understanding of what’s needed to become an elite athlete. Students will also learn more about the different career opportunities available in sport, such as becoming a strength and conditioning coach or a sports scientist.


Comprehensive 6 week program

Our program is run over a 6 week period either face-to-face, online or a combination of the two. The program covers topics such as:

  • A draft combine at your school

  • Data analysis and reporting

  • Goal setting

  • Habit building

  • Movement

  • Mindfulness and meditation

  • Inclusive sports

  • Nutrition

  • Recovery

  • Coaching.


Great outcomes for the students

No matter which way the students decide to go, they’ll come out of this course with a great deal. They’ll be able to:

  • Understand the role of a strength and conditioning coach/sports scientist

  • Have a greater understanding of the requirements to work in the sports industry

  • Understand the lifestyle and demands of professional athletes

  • Design and run a conditioning session with a group of athletes

  • Understand how the body moves 

  • Have a greater understanding of their own training and ways to improve performance

  • Experience meditation and gratitude to become more mindful within their own training and life

  • Develop a greater growth mindset and more self-awareness.

We have a southern suburbs hub that operates out of the Seaview High School gym in addition to operations in Port Adelaide. If you’re interested in joining but distance has been a factor, contact us to join or if you would like to set up your own hub at your school.

At the Seaview high school gym, two male students are working out. One male student is laying on his back on a black work out bench as he does an exercise holding a dumbbell in each hand. The other male student is standing at his head, assisting him during this exercise.
