Community Outreach

The Illawarra Academy of Sport is a community focused organisation which provides young talented athletes with the opportunity to pursue elite sports development programs while maintaining strong community ties - this in turn produces young ambassadors for the Illawarra Community, the Illawarra Academy of Sport and their partners.

The IAS Community Outreach Program provides opportunities for scholarship athletes to get involved in targeted community projects as part of their holistic development and support of local community.

The IAS has established numerous relationships with a variety of local community organisations including The Cancer Council, The Disability Trust, The Salvation Army and Suicide Prevention Australia and will facilitate the involvement of scholarship athletes into their various fundraising events or projects.

Throughout the Scholarship term ALL athletes as part of their scholarship will be encouraged to become involved in at least one event or project with our community partners.

If you are interested in speaking to the IAS about a community partnership please contact the IAS Team on (02) 4225 3899.
