What is the Clearinghouse for Sport?

The Clearinghouse for Sport (Clearinghouse) brings research, expertise and evidence from leaders in the field of sport, human performance and physical activity together in one place. It’s a comprehensive online portal for your sport information needs.

Made in Australia

The Clearinghouse was established in 2012 drawing on the Australian Government’s investment in sport information and knowledge development dating back to the establishment of the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) in 1981.

Originally developed for an Australian audience, the Clearinghouse website quickly attracted significant international attention. So we decided to develop a version of our work more suitable to share with people living outside of Australia.

This international version of the Clearinghouse website presents much of what we know and continue to learn about sport in Australia. We invite you to connect with us and share your knowledge and insights of sport and human performance from your part of the world.
