Eating Disorders in Sport Workshop

The AIS Disordered Eating in High Performance Sport Project is multifaceted and aims to improve athletes’ health, wellbeing, and performance through the prevention and management of disordered eating and eating disorders. The project emphasises an all-of-sport approach to help drive culture change.

Purpose

Disordered eating (DE) and eating disorders (EDs) are serious, complex, and often misunderstood. All role holders within the high performance (HP) sports system have a part to play in the prevention and early identification of DE and EDs.

The AIS, in collaboration with the National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC), have developed an education program for coaches and performance support practitioners that improves knowledge and awareness and assists them to work up to, but not beyond their professional scope of practice.
