National Sporting Organisations

With a focus on developing sustainable sport for Australia, the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) is committed to working closely with our sports partners to collectively achieve sustained international success and increased participation.

To achieve the best possible return from the Australian Government’s record $1.2 billion dollar investment in sport over four years, the ASC has introduced an annual performance review that looks at historical performance as well as future potential to determine future investment.

This will deliver a more contemporary performance review process aimed at helping sports to focus on their long term planning.

To support this process the ASC has released an Annual Sport Performance Review (ASPR) overview document to assist all sports to understand its key principles, roles and responsibilities, and how funding allocations are ultimately decided.  The ASPR overview document is currently being reviewed and will be available below when finalised.

The ASC is committed to the sustainability and growth of sports. The ASPR model is intended to balance certainty and continuity with the need to achieve accountability for the Australian Government investment.

The ASC already provides support to funded and non-funded sports. This includes but is not limited to, access to coaching and officiating programs, governance support, planning and education opportunities and assistance to help sports develop inclusive participation programs.
