In case you missed it, the Australian Sports Commission released its 2019-2023 Corporate Plan to outline its vision and strategic priorities for the next four years.

Introducing the Corporate Plan, Australian Sports Commission Chairman John Wylie explained "driving national behaviour change, to get more Australians moving more often, means we must continually evolve too. We have made significant progress in the past year and this won't stop. We have enacted a new operating model, which enables our Sport Australia entity to focus on participation, physical activity and sport industry growth for the benefit of all Australians. It empowers the Australian Institute of Sport with greater autonomy to succeed. In the competitive global sport environment, especially with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics on the horizon. Australia's commitment, outlined in the Australian Government's national sport plan, Sport 2030, is to reduce physical inactivity by 15% by 2030."
The Corporate Plan aims to deliver three key outcomes:
- Getting more Australians moving more often
- Building the capability of sport to create a robust, connected industry
- Creating national pride and inspiration through international sporting success
