National Sporting Organisations

The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) works closely with National Sporting Organisations (NSOs) and National Sporting Organisations for people with disability (NSODs) to develop sport from community participation to high performance level.

The notion of both social and elite pathways for athletes, coaches, officials and administrators lies at the heart of a sport’s effective planning processes. The ASC directs its funding and services to ensure these pathways are in place and are effective in delivering increased participation and continued international sporting success.

Australian Government funded sports are required to have an updated Member Protection Policy to receive Government funding.
