Sport Governance Principles 2020

by BowlsSA5

A new resource has been launched to help Australia’s sporting leaders – many of them volunteers – face the current challenges of COVID-19 and to build a stronger sporting future.

Sport Governance Principles 2020 is aimed at giving sporting Boards and Directors clear, consistent and educational advice that improves how sport is governed, no matter the size of resources of the sporting organisation.

Sport Australia is launching the Principles in conjunction with State and Territory Agencies of Recreation and Sport.  Sports across the country have contributed to the co-design of the Principles and, to reflect that, a series of six interactive webinars are being held from August 3-12.  To view South Australia’s launch date or a suitable webinar to attend, go to https://www.sportaus.gov.au/media-centre/news/launching-a-new-sport-governance-framework

The COVID-19 pandemic halted sporting competitions world-wide and, more than ever, Australian sport is competing with other recreational activities for participants. Acting Sport Australia CEO Rob Dalton encouraged all sporting organisations, from local to national bodies, to engage with Sport Governance Principles 2020 and the additional resources bring out the best in their sport for participants.

“These Principles challenge sporting leaders to seek continuous improvement for their sports in areas such as values, behaviours, vision, diversity, integrity and cohesion. The best sporting organisations harness the collective capability within their sport and drive progress.”

The Sport Governance 2020, as well as a full list of interactive tools, resources and education, can be found at https://www.sportaus.gov.au/governance

Sport Australia will also launch a series of podcasts later in August speaking to special guests personalising their experiences and lessons learned.
