National Community Sport Conference

Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th July

 

More people playing, recreating and participating in community sport and active recreation provides a compelling range of health, community development, crime reduction, educational and economic benefits for communities, groups and individuals. Bringing together global and Australian leading thinkers, practitioners and case studies to showcase planning, design, architecture, technology, management practices and innovative solutions that will encourage more of the community to be active through play, recreation and sport in community spaces.

Sport is More Than Training and Competing

Evolving the focus of the conversation from growing sports participation in traditional sports, has progressed into how play, recreation and fitness activities can be as important a focus as training for sport and then competing. The understanding of specific target audience insights should allow us to develop specific programs, activities and events to firstly activate and then retain more of the community in being active. Is this the focus of what government and sport should be doing? How are other Countries balancing the traditional needs with the new demands of a modern society with the urbanisation and adaption of sport.
