The Australian Sports Commission’s (ASC) has revealed its latest corporate plan, continuing its commitment to growing participation in organised sport.

Unveiling the report, the Minister for Sport, Senator Richard Colbeck said Sport Australia and the Australian Institute of Sport had each shown tremendous agility and a renewed focus on supporting sport.

“Australia’s remarkable achievement at the Tokyo Olympics was an inspiration to us all,” Senator Colbeck said.

“It not only inspired our sport stars of the future, but it also highlights what can be achieved when funding and support meets the needs of elite sports men and women.”

He said the Government’s commitment to funding sport at every level had also helped the sector navigate the extraordinary challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Senator Colbeck said the ASC would work toward increasing participation at every level while ensuring a world-leading, high-performance system was in place to prioritise athlete wellbeing.

Chair of the ASC, Josephine Sukkar said sport had an ability to unite, inspire and build healthier, stronger communities.

“The pandemic has presented us with uncertainty, but also opportunity to refocus our goals to support and grow Australian sport at all levels,” Ms Sukkar said.

“By helping Australians understand the value and benefits of sport, and growing the capability of our sport workforce, we can make Australia stronger through sport,” she said.
