The department supports the development of a sustainable and diverse sport and recreation industry in Western Australia.
We support an industry that encourages
participation, develops talent and contributes to the health and
wellbeing of all Western Australians. Our core function is to help local
communities and organisations to be better at delivering sport and
We do this by providing support and advice on:
Running sports clubs and
organisations is complex. In many ways, all sport is a business, with
even the smallest clubs subject to a range of rules and regulations.
This can make their management, sometimes difficult. However, help is
amongst these pages.
The department’s sport and recreation consultants have experience
across all aspects of sport and recreation, including policy,
regulations, finance and promotions. They are here to help organisations
best prepare and manage their resources and members, from planning a
new sports facility to undertaking a training course.
The department offers consultancy services for sport and recreation organisations in WA.
Contact your sport or recreation consultant or find out about the role of sport and recreation consultants.
The department, through grants, subsidies and scholarships, provides funding to organisations who facilitate sport and active recreation. Funding is important to support the industry and provide active opportunities for every Western Australian.
