Australia’s Winning Edge (AWE) places significant importance on supporting athletes to achieve life success. The AIS will:
- provide system development and leadership;
- contribute to the consistent and sustainable success of Australian athletes on the world stage; and
- contribute to improved levels of athlete accountability and responsibility.
The key alignment principles of the Personal Excellence strategy in line with AWE include:
- investing for success;
- good governance and capability;
- the right support.
The Personal Excellence strategy under AWE is led by the AIS and delivered in collaboration National Sporting Organisations (NSOs), the State Institutes of Sport/State Academies of Sport (SIS/SAS), the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC), Australian Paralympic Committee (APC) and the Australian Commonwealth Games Association (ACGA).
The development of the Personal Excellence strategy has been the result of independent research commissioned by the AIS, workshops with a number of state institutes, academic research and third party providers.
