Communities that are able to offer a range of quality sport and recreation opportunities will have a number of well run, sustainable sport and recreation organisations consisting of dedicated volunteers.
For your Council to maintain this standard, or work towards achieving this standard, Sporting Advantage can provide a series of community development workshops designed to teach new skills to sport and recreation club volunteers and educate individuals on health and fitness topics.
A 12 month series of 1-2 hour community development workshops could provide a different topic every month, targeting a different demographic of your community, as outlined below. Funding through grants programs is readily available to provide a series such as this at no cost to the public.
