Sport, Recreation & Healthy Living
The Sport and Recreation Team consists of 2 main programs;
Supporting Country Sports
The Supporting Country Sports (SCS) Program aims to strengthen the capacity of rural and regional communities to respond to sport and active recreation issues which impact at the grassroots level.
Access for All Abilities
The Access for All Abilities (AAA) program focuses on developing opportunities for sporting clubs, sporting associations as well as other recreation providers to develop more inclusive practices. Leisure Networks staff are all committed to building partnerships with sport and recreation providers to develop their capacity to be strong inclusive places.
The Healthy Communities Team consists of 3 program areas; Community Sport Industry, the Good Sports Accreditation Program and the VicHealth funded PICSAR Program.
The Healthy Communities Team aims to work across a number of different health promoting projects to ensure our communities are healthy, active, resilient and inclusive.
Community Sport Industry (CSI)
Community Sport Industry (CSI) provides training and resources to clubs so they can deliver community physical activity programs outside of structured mainstream sports participation
Good Sports Accreditation Program
The Good Sports Accreditation program is a partnership between the Australian Drug Foundation (ADF), national, state, regional and local sports bodies, and the government sector to develop a safer and healthier community. The Good Sports program helps sporting clubs manage alcohol responsibly. Through helping sporting clubs implement alcohol practices and policies, clubs have recreated a new club culture that attracts families and junior players.
Participation in Community Sport and Active Recreation (PICSAR)
The Participation in Community Sport and Active Recreation (PICSAR) program is funded via VicHealth and aims to work with communities to develop opportunities for people to get active and healthier.
