CQUni Taipans Academy
The Academy was first launched in 2001 and operated until 2010. It returned in 2012 after a two-year hiatus with the support of CQUniversity Australia, and remains the only such programme in Far North Queensland to operate under a national sporting franchise.
CQUniversity Cairns Taipans assistant coach Jamie Pearlman delivers the Academy curriculum in conjunction with Taipans’ strength and conditioning coach, Scott Callaghan.
A number of Academy graduates have pursued successful professional basketball careers, including Aron Baynes, Nathan Jawai and Kerry Williams.
A corporate partnership with the Academy provides your business with a formal link to the top junior sports development in Far North Queensland.
Partnerships for 2015/16 are now available. Contact the CQUniversity Cairns Taipans on (07) 4041 3000 for more information.
