Connecting people with their communities

Sporting clubs are important community places and part of our way of life. Clubs are where children learn about being active and part of a team, where people volunteer skills and a place where lifelong friends are made.

Leisure Networks works with all types of community sporting clubs, leagues, associations and state sporting bodies supporting them with tailored programs and resources to ensure sport is great for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. These programs and resources include:

  • Clubhelp website - provides committee members with all the information and templates required to run a successful sporting club. Here's some tips on creating a better club for all. 
  • The Barwon Game Changer - Building Gender Equality in Clubs. The Barwon Game Changer is a pilot project aimed at building the capacity of women and girls involved in community sport and recreation clubs in the Barwon region. If your club would like to be involved let us know here. There are some exciting events happening as part of the Barwon Game Changer too? 
  • Responsible Service of Alcohol training - courses to educate anyone over 14 years to support a positive alcohol culture.
  • Good Sports accredited -  heavily subsidised education to help your club become more responsible in its management of alcohol use.
  • Clubs That Care program -  focuses on drug education and creating safe environments.
  • Hydrating your canteen - Making the healthy choice the easy choice with a bit of a ‘nudge’

Leisure Networks also encourages clubs to choose healthy options and explore opportunities. To help raise awareness of the importance of water and re-hydrating correctly, Leisure Networks has partnered with Vichealth and Nutrition Melbourne to provide sporting clubs with an exciting opportunity to be part of canteen case study.  This study will look at how clubs promote water within their facilities and the impact that has on their member’s consumption of water.
