Club Development

Funded by Sport and Recreation Victoria, the Club development program assists Clubs in the provision of quality and inclusive opportunities for involvement in sport and recreation.

The key objectives of the program are:

  • To strengthen the capacity of grassroots sport and recreation organisations to operate in a robust fashion and deliver quality opportunities for participation.
  • To increase the quality and availability of information about local sport and recreation issues, infrastructure and opportunities.
  • To enhance networks between grassroots sport and recreation organisations and other key stakeholders in the community to ensure that sport and recreation services address local community needs and issues.
  • To increase opportunities for the activities of statewide organisations to be delivered at a local level.

South West Sport coordinates and participates in Club Development information sessions & funding forums throughout the year and provides a monthly newsletter to keep clubs informed of opportunities and developments.
