NSW Talent ID

Take your sporting career to the next level with NSWIS

The NSW Institute of Sport is always on the lookout for fresh new talent, and to do so works closely with many national and state sporting organisations to deliver support to up and coming athletes as agreed between those bodies and the Institute.

NSWIS sports programs such as water polo and diving have dedicated NSWIS talent squads, and other NSWIS sports may support targeted athletes through a talent agreement. In many other sports the national and state sporting organisations take a lead role in their own athlete development pathways programs.

For every partnership, NSWIS aligns each sports program’s long term development pathway model and the Australian Sports Commission’s ‘Australia’s Winning Edge’ athlete categorisation.

However, NSWIS does not partner with every sport organisation in the nation.

If you believe you are an athlete, or know of an athlete, who meets the eligibility criteria to be supported by the NSWIS, whether it is in a sport that is has an NSWIS partnership, or as an individual, we want to hear from you.

Useful Information

For current sport programs and the relevant sport’s selection criteria please see NSWIS Sports. If you do not find your sport here, you should consider enquiring about an individual athlete performance scholarship.

Please note, that by completing the enquiry form you are not applying for a scholarship. It should be treated as an expression of interest, and the relevant NSWIS staff will come back to you with further information.
