Play.Sport.Australia. is our new participation game plan and sets out a big picture vision for boosting participation in sport in the years ahead.

Our ambitions for sport are simple. We want:

  • more Australians, particularly young Australians, participating in sport more often
  • year-on-year membership and participation growth for all sports
  • strong sporting organisations that deliver the products and opportunities Australians want.

We look forward to working with sports to transform participation in Australia. The priority areas will include:

  • extending the access sports have to information on participation trends
  • assisting sports to increase demand
  • building the relationship between sports and those that supply it.
