The Miami High Athlete Excellence Program aims to develop the physical, mental and technical capacity of high level athletes. Utilising industry professionals and targeted coaches throughout the course, to nurture and promote the development of young athletes, is key to the success of the program.

The program's holistic approach to developing athletes includes theory sessions that enable participants to develop knowledge around a number of key areas such as components of fitness, anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, sports nutrition, training methods, sport psychology, coaching, officiating and competition preparation.

Practically, students will undertake a variety of lessons that enables them to develop their skill base and tactical awareness in a broad range of physical activities.
