A redesigned Direct Athlete Support (DAS) program
will provide support for around 200 more of Australia’s emerging athletes in addition to approximately 450 athletes already benefiting from the program.
The AIS will invest, from existing resources, an additional $1.6 million per annum into supporting Olympic and Paralympic athletes directly.
The redesigned DAS program will include a new category of athlete support for emerging athletes, to ensure young talent is supported on their journey.
