Athlete Council Guide

Athletes’ Councils are one of the most effective mechanism by which athletes can influence change and champion athlete rights in high performance sport at the national team level. By providing information to the board of directors, coaches and the leadership team of an National Sport Organization, Athletes’ Councils ensure that the voices of athletes at all levels and disciplines are represented in a collaborative, professional and effective manner.

The Athlete Council Guide online learning module represents one of the ongoing chapters of a competencies based learning model for athlete leadership development. The leadership modules have been tailored to create a more athlete focused, concise and user friendly learning experience, providing links to more detailed information as required and easily referenced materials to share with your teammates.
