Our Proud History
The Gippsland Sports Academy was established in 1997 and is a community-based organisation providing developmental opportunities for talented Gippsland athletes within their own region. The Gippsland Sports Academy covers the six Gippsland Municipalities through to the New South Wales border.
The Gippsland Sports Academy provides services to over 110 athletes per year. The athletes assisted include many on the fringe of international recognition and numerous athletes who represented Victoria and Australia. The Gippsland Sports Academy has assisted in producing an Olympian and three Paralympians from the sport of swimming. We are proud to say Silver medal Olympian and World Champion Swimmer Ashley Delaney is the Patron of the Gippsland Sports Academy Swimming Program.
The Gippsland sporting community relies heavily on the GSA to help break down the obstacles and disadvantages for local athletes such as travel, lack of elite level coaching and development programs. The Gippsland community is extremely passionate about sport and the region has an immense nursery of natural talent.
