Our vision is for Australia to be the world’s most active sporting nation, known for its integrity, sporting success and world-leading sports industry.
The ASC comprises:
Sport Australia — responsible for driving the broader sport sector including participation, supporting activities linked to sport and sport industry growth; and the
Australian Institute of Sport — leading our high-performance sports system
From grassroots right up to the pinnacle of elite international competition, we work together with the sport industry and the wider community to champion the role sport can play in engaging every Australian.
As outlined in the ASC Corporate Plan 2019-2023, the ASC is delivering three key outcomes:
MORE AUSTRALIANS MOVE MORE OFTEN
BUILDING THE CAPABILITY OF SPORT TO CREATE A ROBUST CONNECTED INDUSTRY
CREATING NATIONAL PRIDE AND INSPIRATION THROUGH INTERNATIONAL SPORTING SUCCESS
These outcomes are delivered through six important strategies:
Embedding physical activity through greater engagement and involvement of children and youth in sport.
Increasing awareness and reach in areas which have a direct impact on physical activity and physical literacy levels
Building workforce capability across the sector
Improving the digital capability of the Australian sports sector
Leading and enabling a united and collaborative high performance system that supports Australian athletes to achieve podium success
Evolving a system-wide approach to athlete wellbeing for athletes to engage with and inspire the community
In 2019–20, work across these six strategic areas has shaped the ASC’s approach to achieving its outcome under the 2019–20 Portfolio Budget Statements.
These strategies are underpinned and enabled by a seventh, internally focused strategy of driving a leaner and more efficient organisation and building a strong workforce culture.
PBS Outcome 1: Increased participation in organised sport and continued international sporting success including through leadership and development of a cohesive and effective sports sector, provision of targeted financial support, and the operation of the Australian Institute of Sport
