SUAC relies partly on the financial support of Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness and the University of Sydney as well as very generous donations to the University of Sydney Sports Foundation Athletics division from our many supporters. In addition our athletes benefit from SUSF’s Elite Athlete Program. We especially thank our named scholarship benefactors which are:

  • Aleksandra Pozder Scholarship | current recipient Allanah Pitcher

  • Collins/Peasley Scholarship | Austin Little

In 2017 we successfully launched Target Tokyo, a 5 year program securing a Belgian training base entirely with our alumni & friend’s help. This provided our athletes with the best chance of making international teams & Tokyo Olympics which was achieved with a record 12 SUAC athletes representing Australia at Tokyo.  In 2022 we commenced our next Olympic cycle program Target Paris supporting over 30 student athletes competing on the international stage. 12 athletes represented Australia in World Championships and Commonwealth Games in 2022 with many more expected in 2023.  The detailed program can be found on the image or here.  Visit our Athletes page to see who these programs are assisting.
