About Us

The ACT Academy of Sport (ACTAS) was formed in 1989 as the high performance arm of Sport and Recreation.

ACTAS is an endorsed Official Olympic and Paralympic Training Centre and a member of the National Institute Network (NIN). Membership of the NIN includes the eight Australian state and territory institutes and academies of sport (SIS/SAS) as well as the Australian Institute of Sport.
