craft as a coach.
This is the first time that we've all come
together with the same vision.
Improving the leadership of our sport in that
high performance area.
Continually learning, continually pushing
To be able to develop programs. Thinking strategically.
Is absolutely critical for Australia's high
performance outcomes and to be the world's
best means you need to learn.
How to plan for the best. How to communicate
for the best outcomes.
And the communication between the Centre and
Melbourne Business School is a fabulous opportunity.
Tailoring specific opportunities to people
professionally employed in sport.
This is an area that is untouched and it's
an area we can certainly gain some competitive

can do better in the future.

As a key element of Australia’s Winning Edge, the AIS Centre for Performance Coaching and Leadership was established to deliver world best approaches to learning and development, formalise pathways for professional development for coaches and performance leaders, drive research and encourage innovation.
In 2013, the AIS Centre for Performance Coaching and Leadership welcomed its first intake of participants in the Performance Coach Program and the Performance Leaders Program. New intakes for these courses will occur annually.
In 2014, the Podium Coach Program welcomed its first intake of participants.
Developed in partnership with Melbourne Business School, the structure of each program is thematic rather than discipline based, with content delivered via a series of face-to-face residential labs.
The AIS Centre for Performance Coaching and Leadership also offers open learning opportunities throughout the year, including seminars from world best content providers. In 2015 the "Leading for Success | Readiness for Rio" leadership series was conducted.
