Developing the International Centre of Training Excellence
Published on 02 January 2019
We are developing the International Centre of Training Excellence (ICTE) as a world-leading multisport high performance, education, sports medicine and accelerated recovery facility.
The ICTE will be the centrepiece for the future of Blacktown International Sportspark and will cement Blacktown as the sporting capital of Western Sydney.
The $100 million ICTE is scheduled to open in 2021. It will serve visiting international teams, our elite athletes, local sportspeople and the wider community.
All will benefit from top quality support including cutting edge training, physio and sports science research facilities.
The ICTE will recognise, nurture and develop athletic talent. It will provide sports science and medicine, education and rehabilitation to both sportspeople and others in need of recovery treatment.
2036 statement - Where we will be
The ICTE is a nationally and internationally-renowned facility, the centrepiece of the BISP. The Centre caters for sport at every level, from community sporting groups to local elite athletes and visiting international teams.
Priorities for 2018/19
Key actions for 2018/19 will be:
- Three packages of planning approval documents prepared:
