Australia’s High Performance 2032+ Sport Strategy has been created by the organisations in Australia’s high performance sport system to articulate how the system will organise and mobilise itself to ‘win well to inspire Australians’.
The successful implementation of the Strategy cannot be taken for granted. The creation of the future that the Strategy envisions will be the result of a shared endeavour by every organisation and every person in the HP sport system.
To reinforce and maintain that collective responsibility for implementing the Strategy, the HP2032+ Leadership Group has been formed to oversee the implementation of the Strategy. This Leadership Group has representatives from organisations across the HP sport system, with its members covering a range of role types in the system.
This document outlines the roles and responsibilities of the organisations in Australia’s HP sport system in delivering the Strategy. The Strategy is centred around athletes; they are the beneficiaries of the performance of these roles and responsibilities.
The matrix in this document captures the current state, identifying the key roles each organisation plays on behalf of the entire HP sport system to ensure achievement of the Strategy’s priority areas.
Role types are articulated in the Glossary of Terms, found on the final page of this document.
This document has been prepared, with much consultation, under the auspices of the Leadership Group.
This document is written for the information of the partner organisations in the HP sport system.
The roles and responsibilities shown in this matrix are those that stakeholders across our system have agreed to play for Horizon 1 of the 2032+ Strategy. These roles and responsibilities will be reviewed after the 2024 Paris Olympic Games to ensure the roles and responsibilities remain fit-for-purpose as our system evolves and progresses towards our collective vision.

The Australian HP sport system is complex. It is well recognised that within the broad categories of organisation type outlined in this document, each has its own unique specific accountabilities and pressures. While this matrix can act as a guide, it is imperative each organisation understand who their key HP partner stakeholders are and have clarity over the specifics as to who will play what role in supporting our athletes to win well to inspire Australians. As such, the following recommendations should be considered alongside the HP2032+ roles and responsibilities matrix:
