The Athletes Committee is an initiative to provide a representative body and voice for athletes, whom are a crucial component of esports. It is an important step forward in the development of esports in Australia.
This committee will work with the AESA and other stakeholders to improve the governance, sustainability, inclusiveness, safe environment and fair play for all in the esports industry.
It is clear that athletes participating in esports face a number of challenges including the protection of rights, support networks, and receiving due recognition and respect from the broader community for their achievements. The committee will work with athletes to face these challenges in addition to a set of core goals that will further the development of esports in Australia.
