- The Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS) supports elite athlete development through 12 squad programs.
- A scholarship is another way to get support if your sport is not covered by a QAS squad program.
- Your state sporting organisation may offer athlete development programs.
- See Swimming Queensland's athlete development program as an example.
- The Australian Institute of Sport offers funding.
Retiring from sport?
