Personal Excellence is an AIS initiative designed to assist athletes to make informed decisions that impact performance in sport and life.
The AIS has built upon the success of the Athlete Career and Education (ACE) network by enhancing the current national delivery platform. Athlete Career and Educations name is replaced with Personal Excellence.
Today’s athletes live, train and compete in a complex environment and through increased instant media, face public scrutiny placing significant pressure on all areas of their life and their ability to manage their actions.
They are faced with a myriad of contemporary issues such as social media, image/public profile, media, mental wellbeing, integrity, professionalism, career and education, finance, anti-doping, illicit drugs and gambling.
Our media is populated with news stories of athlete’s decisions and choices more often poor that have significant consequences.
Through a multifaceted approach, athletes will be provided guidance, resources and educational opportunities to achieve personal and professional empowerment and become professional, accountable, responsible and resilient in their approach towards sport and life.
This is Personal Excellence!
The first of many Personal Excellence initiatives, myAISplaybook provides greater support and guidance for high performance athletes.
myAISplaybook creates an athlete-only virtual community — one where athletes on their sporting journey communicate and learn from each other across all sports.
myAISplaybook allows the AIS to directly deliver the principles of Personal Excellence, as well as address contemporary issues faced by our athletes.
