The QAS is an initiative of the Queensland Government, and is currently under the Treasurer, Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships and Minister for Sport, the Honourable Curtis Pitt MP.
The Australian Sports Commission provides additional funds and in-kind support to the QAS.
Apart from providing funding and in-kind support, national and state sporting organisations working in QAS sports assist in the development of programs and the recruitment of coaches.
QAS athletes are assisted in their education and employment pursuits by a number of supporters who offer educational scholarships or flexible employment opportunities suitable to the needs of elite athletes. Head to the Personal Development page for more information on this service.
