NSC Academy

Welcome to the NSC Academy

The vision of the National Sports & Physical Activity Convention 2021 (NSC21) is to provide opportunities for the industry to have access to insights, greater knowledge and research that supports them in their roles and vision for the future.

We aim to bring you global insights and interviews with global thought leaders, policy makers, providers and influencers. Together we are committed to making a difference in activating the community, providing more options for people to be active, to play, recreate and participate in community sport.

The NSC Academy is free of charge to all delegates, speakers, collaborators, sponsors and exhibitors until 30th June 2022. Collectively with our collaborators and partners who have generously shared their content and insights, we thank you. If you have thoughts on how we can improve the experience or feedback share more insights, please contact us.

How to use this resource

We have categorised the hundreds of curated pieces of content into the Academy Library under nine key Categories, with sub-categories (tags) you can narrow your search by. You will be able to save your favourite resources onto your own personal ‘My Resources’ list for future reference.

There are video and audio interviews, presentations, research papers and articles, the NSC Forums 2021 from both Melbourne and Sydney and NSC 2019 and ’20 presentations also. We are planning to provide access to the recordings of the NSC21 (the majority of presentations) 14 days after the event, around the end of November for people who have registered and attended NSC21.

Each month we are planning to share more content and will send you a note to let you know when we have updated the NSC Academy. This will include interviews with key speakers and global thought leaders, current trends, whitepapers, national best practice and standards. This means, the earlier you fully register, the quicker you can have access to all this additional knowledge sharing this year.

We hope you enjoy our ever-growing library of content.
