AIS Athlete Advisory Committee

Ensuring athletes have a voice in shaping the future of high performance sport in Australia

The AIS Athlete Advisory Committee was established in August 2020.

The purpose of the Committee is to make recommendations to the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) Board on matters of importance to high performance sport and to help ensure athletes have a voice in shaping the future of high performance sport in Australia.

Members of the Committee use their experience and insights to:

  • Provide insights and recommendations to identify both current and future national high performance strategic interventions directly impacting athletes;
  • contribute to the development and review of athlete-related policies, standards and education materials;
  • provide insights and recommendations relating to integrated holistic athlete development; and
  • work with other athlete committees to ensure a collaborative and consistent approach to develop and support high performance athletes to progress to the podium and beyond.
