Past programs

In 2010, the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) announced that the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) would move to support 35 high performance sport programs across 26 sports from 2011 in an effort to ensure the Institute continues to operate as a world class sports training facility.

Like all organisations, the AIS has had to find productivity improvements to sustain its performance and capacity to strategically support high performance sport in Australia.

Recognising the continuing annual rise in costs to deliver and support these programs, the AIS could not continue to support the number of programs whilst also maintaining the integrity of the AIS in line with its aspiration to be the world’s best sports institute producing champions for Australia.

In consideration of this, from 2011, the AIS stopped delivering high performance programs for three of its sport programs – archery, boxing and golf.

This decision also allows the AIS to maximise Government investment in high performance sport by ensuring the Institute better aligns with the priority high performance sports identified earlier this year by the joint Australian Sports Commission/State and Territory Institutes and Academies of Sport National Assessment Process.

Those athletes affected continue to receive AIS support services in accordance with the AIS Athlete Transition Policy.

The ASC has allocated extra high performance funding to archery, boxing and golf to support their programs outside of the AIS.

This allocation of extra funding to these sports allow the sports to run their own high performance programs to best fit their individual needs.
