Submission in response to the Development of a National Sports Plan in Australia

Research output: Other contributionSubmission to governmentResearch

Abstract

In May 2017, the Hon. Greg Hunt, Commonwealth Minister for Sport announced the development of a
National Sport Plan, for release in 2018.
Currently, Australia’s Winning Edge, released by the Australian Sports Commission (the Commission) in
2012, guides policy in relation to high performance, and Play. Sport. Australia., released in 2015, provides
strategic direction in relation to growing participation. The National Sport Plan will establish a shared set of
national expectations across these issues, and others, for the sport and physical activity sectors.
The Plan will be based on four key pillars, which recognise the fundamental contribution sport makes to
society:
 prevention through physical activity, recognising the role that sport plays in supporting the health and
wellbeing of Australians
 participation, recognising the role that sport plays in supporting communities to come together to
compete, play and get active
 performance, recognising the Government’s commitment to high performance sport in Australia
 integrity, recognising the importance of honesty and fair play in all levels of sport, from community and
grassroots through to elite sport.

The Commission coordinated a national consultation process, involving 13 stakeholder forums – nine run in
partnership with State Departments of Sport and Recreation (SDSRs) – an additional three National Sporting
Organisation (NSO) forums in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, and a health promotion/prevention forum
run facilitated by the Commonwealth Department of Health; and, an online submission process via the
Commission’s website and a community perceptions survey.
