The Government will fund a new national approach to help prepare talented able and disabled athletes for life before, during and after their elite sporting careers. Pathways for young athletes will be strengthened. They will be better identified, mentored and developed through improved access to the best coaches, sports clinicians, better training, and quality competition.

Emerging, current and retired elite athletes will be better trained in both physical and mental health, receiving support to help them achieve the right balance between wellbeing, community engagement, and the pressure and expectations involved in high performance sport.
