About Us

Located at Sydney Olympic Park, the NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) provides world class facilities, services and sport programs to elite and emerging athletes across NSW.

Operations officially commenced in 1996 and today the Institute has over 700 high performance athletes on squad or individual scholarships, with scholarships offered over a diverse range of sporting disciplines.

The NSWIS offers a comprehensive spectrum of support services to elite and emerging athletes in their home environment, enabling them to pursue their sporting careers with minimal disruption to their family, education and employment.

These decentralised services are complemented by the NSWIS facility. The purpose built facility provides a base for our internationally recognised sport programs, offering a central location, and access to the full range of NSWIS services, for many of Australia’s Olympians and Paralympians, our world class coaches, and the next generation of sporting talent.

The Institute’s Principal Partner is ClubsNSW, who provides over $1 million a year in sponsorship support.


The NSWIS is a leading high performance sport Institute that provides world class coaching, services, and flexible innovative training environments. In conjunction with a holistic approach to athlete welfare, career and educational assistance, the NSWIS supports and develops targeted elite and emerging athletes to achieve their highest potential.
