Elite Programs

A plan for the future

Following adoption of the 2017-2020 Strategic Plan, a renewed focus has been established to further develop an Elite Athlete Program at the University of Adelaide in addition to the support provided to elite athletes through the Elite Athlete Support office of the University.

To commence in 2018, the plan's strategy has been divided into three areas:

  • promoting awareness and pursuit of "elite" opportunities;

  • increasing support to clubs and athletes; and

  • individual financial support.

Affiliated clubs have been surveyed to provide base level information to assist the AU Sport Board in assessing the current environment and the possible re-structuring of club support programs for elite sport and individual sporting scholarships.  Further information will be provided on specific areas of assistance during the year.
