Official visits

The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) and the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) are proud of their excellent reputations and the interest their programs attract each year.

We receive many requests annually from international delegations and sporting teams who wish to see and use the facilities and receive briefings from program managers. The ASC’s International Relations section accommodates as many of these requests as possible.

The AIS is able to cater for international sporting camps, and international groups are welcome to take a tour of the AIS conducted by an AIS athlete.

Requesting a visit

Before you plan a visit to the ASC’s facilities, browse the information already available on this website, which includes media fact sheets and documentation on encouraging participation in sport, coach accreditation, AIS scholarships and our world-class sports science and medicine research.

If, after reviewing this information, you would still like to visit the ASC or AIS in an official capacity, you will need to submit a written request.

To help us determine whether your request can be fulfilled, we require the following information:

  • visitor details (names, titles and functions)
  • the size of the delegation
  • whether the delegation or any of its members have visited the ASC’s facilities previously
  • outcomes of any earlier visits
  • what the delegation is seeking from a visit to the ASC’s facilities
  • specific requests, areas of interest and outcomes sought by the delegation.

A fee may be charged for briefings conducted in Canberra. Any fee must be paid in advance. If a briefing is cancelled, a portion of the fee will be refunded.
