Members (115+) State sporting organisations Associates Analogous to other State/Territory Sports Federations Government recognised Industry Peak Body
Sport NFP Sector 80+ sports in Queensland Over 6000 clubs Over 1 million Queenslanders (3:1 participants : off field) largely volunteer run Costs of participation, access to facilities and accessing sufficient “workers” key inhibitors Workforce development difficult Vital but under resourced component of strategy to produce healthier community
Challenges include: Integrity issues covered by media with elite sport potentially seeping into community sport and impacting on Queenslanders’ health and wellbeing viz alcohol / drugs / betting / safety / litigation / behaviour. Government/preventative health lobbyists keen to eradicate some connections (alcohol / food related) making contribution via sponsorship to sport without due regard to implications for community sport. Inadequate levels of appropriately skilled people prepared to govern / manage sport over time / access to places & spaces to play sport / cost in time and money.
Strategies include: Engage the underrepresented in sport (current priority women and girls). Deal with inhibitors to participation(cost / time; access to places / spaces and accessing adequate workforce). Reinvigorate sport and physical activity in government schools. Key decisions need to take account of market trends, member capacity and forward oriented research, e.g. Queensland Plan / ASC Studies.
