Sports Tally 2016
Setting the scene
The AIS is a division of the Australian Sports Commission (ASC), the Australian Government’s peak body for sport.
As Australia’s strategic high performance sport agency, the AIS is responsible and accountable for leading the delivery of Australia’s international sporting success. In 2012, the AIS launched Australia’s Winning Edge 2012–2022, a national strategy outlining ambitious international performance targets for Australia over the next decade.
In order to deliver success under Australia’s Winning Edge, a sharper, more robust national funding and accountability model has been introduced. Investment has been prioritised to sports that demonstrate the greatest chance of short, medium and long-term success and sports that have the capability to deliver.
