Australian Institute of Sport

The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) is the Australian Government agency responsible for supporting and investing in sport and physical activity at all levels.

The ASC was established in 1985 and operates under the Australian Sports Commission Act 1989 and is governed by a Board of Commissioners appointed by the Minister of Sport.

The ASC unites two entities: Sport Australia — responsible for driving the broader sport sector including participation, physical activity and industry growth and the Australian Institute of Sport — leading our high performance sport system.

The Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and TAFE Directors Australia (TDA) recognise there is a range of mutual interests, for the benefit of students and athletes, between these two national organisations.  One of these is the formation of the Elite Athlete TAFE Network.
