Catapult exists to build and improve the performance of athletes and teams at all levels of sport. This is our story.

Originally formed from a partnership between the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and the Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) to maximise the performance of Australian athletes ahead of the Sydney Olympics, Catapult was officially founded in Melbourne in 2006.

The wearable technologies developed by Catapult in its early years were designed to address fundamental questions in sports performance. That purpose has remained at the heart of our work as we’ve grown from an Australian startup to a global leader in sports technology with solutions for every element of the performance ecosystem; from wearable tracking to athlete management and video analysis.

Catapult is committed to making performance technology available to athletes at all levels. As well as working with some of the biggest teams and organizations in world sport, we’ve created Catapult One – our athlete tracking device for the consumer market–to enable amateur soccer players to monitor their performance like the pros.

Through a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisition, Catapult continues to lead the way in sports science research and innovation. Today, the business is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX:CAT) and has over 340+ staff across 30 locations, working with more than 2970 teams in 39 sports.
