Athletes provide a range of services, from guests at award ceremonies, school appearances through to motivational speaking

Athlete Appearances provide access to elite athletes and national categorised athletes, for groups and organisations - including schools, sporting clubs, charities and businesses. Elite athletes are recognised as aspiring Olympic, Paralympic or Commonwealth Game athletes. Categorised athletes have been identified as those with the greatest potential to contribute to Australia’s Olympic success, whether they are the next generation of emerging athletes, or well established athletes within their sporting career.

The AIS will work with you to identify the right athlete for your organisations event or function based on the athletes location or their availability due to training and competition schedules.
