Athletes provide a range of services, from guests at award ceremonies, school engagements through to motivational speaking

Athlete Engagements provide access to elite athletes and national categorised athletes, for groups and organisations including schools, sporting clubs, charities and businesses. Elite athletes are recognised as aspiring Olympic, Paralympic or Commonwealth Games athletes. Categorised athletes have been identified as those with the greatest potential to contribute to Australia’s Olympic success, whether they are the next generation of emerging athletes or well established athletes within their sporting career.

The AIS will work with you to identify the right athlete for your organisation's event or function based on the athlete's location and their availability due to training and competition schedules.

Due to current uncertainty around COVID-19, Athlete Engagements requests will be unavailable until further notice.
For more information please visit our dedicated COVID-19 webpage.
