Community Engagement

Community engagement programs

Supporting elite athlete engagements, outside of training and competition, to position athletes as role models within their communities.

In 2020, the AIS Community Events Program was developed to provide opportunities for elite athletes to engage and contribute to communities leveraging key dates and community causes on the calendar.

The program has partnered with a number of not-for-profit organisations to further assist in the promotion and awareness around key dates in the year.
