Share your sports thoughts to shape national plan
Thursday 25 May 2017
Shadow Minister for Sport and Member for Ovens Valley Tim McCurdy invites sport fans from across the region to help shape the Federal Coalition Government’s new National Sport Plan.
The plan will be a long-term strategy for the whole of sport and will examine four key pillars of participation, performance, prevention through physical activity and integrity.
A national lottery, to be developed with the states and territories, and activity to boost participation are amongst options being considered.
Consultation will also engage on major sporting events, sports infrastructure, sport governance and funding.
Throughout this process key stakeholders will work closely with the Government, including the states and territories, the Australian Sports Commission and their respective sports, the Australian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Commonwealth Games Australia.
Mr McCurdy said the National Sports Plan would help bring key stakeholders together to work closely with Government.
“Sport and our local sporting clubs and organisations are an important part of life in the Ovens Valley electorate so I encourage our communities to get involved,” he said.
“Contact my office on 5721 6155 or further information about the plan including options for submissions is available at www.sport.gov.au.”
Contributions and ideas are due by 31 July.
