CQUni Taipans Academy

cqujpg_CQUThe CQUniversity Taipans Academy programme provides professional basketball coaching and development to elite junior basketball players in the Cairns region.

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.
