The Concept

The Sports Super Centre (SSC) was built at Runaway Bay, just north of Surfers Paradise, as a training base for athletes from all over the world competing in the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

Schools love SSC because they will tailor a training, competition or event experience to meet the needs of any school sporting team. The complete venue as it offers quality accommodation, dining, sports medicine, gym (NEW in 2018), conference rooms and a host of other facilities all located onsite.

The Sports Super Centre was an official training ground for athletes competing at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and its facilities are now available as a legacy to the local, domestic and international community. They can cater for all sports in one convenient location.
