General Questions

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.

As per our strategy we have divided our plan into three areas:

- Promoting awareness and pursuit of “elite” opportunities;
- Increasing support to clubs and athletes; and
- Individual financial support

While the AU Sport Board can speculate about what they may think are the most important elements of developing elite sport, it is vital that they receive feedback from ALL AU Sport clubs with regard to how they believe we might be able to provide assistance.

This survey consists of a series of short questions and is intended to provide the Board with an idea of attitudes towards elite sport in our university community. For us, gathering this base level information from our clubs will assist us in our assessment of the current environment and the possible restructuring of club support programs for elite sport and individual sporting scholarships.

Clubs are asked to discuss the survey at committee level and then provide the Committee's response (not individual points of view) by Thursday, 30 November.  A PDF version of this survey is available on the AU Sport Website for use for committee discussions only.

If you would like to contact us with any questions, suggestions or to discuss the topic of elite sport, please contact our Elite Sport contact, Hugo Burgin at
