Future Leaders

Developing People

A key objective of the Academy is to develop outstanding sports citizens and community leaders. Education and awareness sessions based on public speaking, drugs in sport, youth leadership, media and sponsor servicing are incorporated into the program. In addition, athletes are exposed to social and promotional situations to develop their personal understanding of the breadth of sports development and community awareness.

Each year athletes attended a personal development camp which challenged the athletes and provided leadership and team building activities.

Local Support

Giving Back

The Illawarra Academy of Sport relies heavily on the support from the five local Councils. Each year a Mayoral Reception is held to thank the Councils for their support and acknowledge the athletes from that region for their achievements.
