Support for clubs

If you are involved in delivering sport and recreation in Eurobodalla, we are here to help you. We work with local clubs and professional recreation providers to make sure you have the support you need to deliver a great experience for your members.

We invite you to:

  • get involved in the Sport and Active Recreation (SPARC) Forum
  • get along to our events and workshops
  • make use of the many free resources to help with club governance, training and retaining volunteers, and amplifying your fundraising efforts.

The Sport and Active Recreation Forum brings together local sporting and recreation leaders to collaborate with Council to provde quality programs for our community.

The forum is all about sharing ideas, identifying key issues and to developing the capabilities we need to grow and thrive.

Forum members will:

  • hear from leading experts in club development
  • get access to targeted training
  • develop helpful networks
  • hear from Council staff about current and upcoming projects
  • be a part of strategic discussions that shape future directions
  • find out about the latest grants and other opportunities available.

For sport and recreation clubs: Learn from experts about ways to keep your club strong and growing, tap into grant opportunities and keep up to date with upcoming recreation works.

For professional coaches: Network and collaborate with local leaders from the clubs and other businesses. Tap into shire-wide strategies to keep the community engaged and active.

For schools and teachers: Be part of the conversation on how we best motivate and inspire young people to develop physical literacy and a life-long association with sport and active recreation.

From time to time we run special workshops and events for sport and recreation providers. Subscribe to stay up to date.

Sustainability in sport workshops

It has been a difficult 18 months for sporting clubs and professionals.  In May we hosted collaborative workshops for engaged people from the Eurobodalla sporting community to work on practical solutions to common challenges

We learned a lot about common issues and explored some ideas for addressing them.  We will be wrapping up and reporting on next steps soon.

Coming soon

  • Workshop: Developing physical literacy
  • Conference: Eurobodalla Sport and Recreation Conference

Roadmap for good governance

Strong clubs have strong governance. Improve your governance with Sport Australia’s nine-step training program.

Governance refers to the way you run your club including the way you structure your committee, your club’s goals and objectives, the way you plan to achieve those outcomes, and the principles you use to make decisions.

Eurobodalla Shire Council supports and encourages diversity and inclusion in sport.

We encourage clubs to use 7 Pillars of Inclusion model developed by Sport Australia and the Play by the Rules initiative to:

  • understand what inclusion means
  • to identify their strengths and weaknesses
  • as a guide to help create a strong, inclusive culture.

The pillars are focused around simple actions that lead to cultural change over time. They can be used across all levels of your sport, for all disadvantaged and diverse groups.
