Supporting Tasmania’s elite athletes

Friday, 30 November 2018


The Hodgman Majority Liberal Government is committed to supporting our elite athletes to achieve their national and international sporting goals through providing quality training at the Tasmanian Institute of Sport.

Seventy-two scholarships were awarded today – High Performance Scholarships were awarded to fifty-seven athletes across eleven sports, plus another 15 athletes were offered Talent Development Scholarships across four sports.

Athletes who received the scholarships represent cycling, archery, rowing, swimming, hockey, skateboarding, weightlifting, sailing, athletics, canoe slalom and sprint.

High performance coaching; sports science and technical analysis; and strength and conditioning coaching are just some of the benefits our elite athletes will have access to.

I congratulate all of the scholarship recipients who have an exciting future ahead of them with the TIS, on the national and international stage.
