Club programs

Clubs & Elite sport

There are many clubs affiliated to AU Sport which have a strong elite base.

While all clubs cater well for all standards of participation, there are a number of clubs which also have a focus on developing high quality student athletes through either fielding teams in State leagues or placing nominations in State and National competitions.

To this end, sports such as Boat (Rowing), Cricket, Cycling, Football (Division 1 Amateur), Gymnastics, Hockey, Judo, Rugby (sevens), Soccer, Touch, Ultimate Frisbee and Volleyball have established programs which are designed to assist an elite student athlete in achieving their potential.

Some of the club programs involve the contracting of high performance coaches for State League teams; the conduct of pre-season camps and specialised one-on-one coaching.  For the Rugby Sevens and Rowing programs, full time coaches have been appointed to head those sports' respective programs.  

Elite athletes are encouraged to contact either the AU Sport office or the club contact listed on the 'clubs' drop down box to seek further information.
