Victorian Institute of Sport


Support through the individual athlete scholarship program is offered annually to athletes from sports which do not have a Tier 1 program.

The VIS play a crucial role in the development and delivery of Shooting Australia’s High Performance Program and their National Centre of Excellence program across both the Shotgun and Pistol disciplines.

Through the partnership between VIS and Shooting Australia the development and engagement of the performance support team has provided a significant contribution to the development and preparation of athletes for benchmark events including the Olympic and Commonwealth Games and ISSF World Championships.

The program plays a key role in supporting SA’s National Coaches to develop, implement and evaluate their individual performance plans for targeted categorised athletes across both Shotgun and Pistol disciplines.
