About the Course

In recognition of the important leadership role Directors hold within the Australian sport landscape, Sport Australia have partnered with the State Territory Agencies for Sport and Recreation to develop the first ever online Director Education Course - The Start Line.

The Start Line Course

Excellent Directors are critical to the success of sporting organisations. Directors have a range of significant legal obligations and the decisions they make have a central impact on their organisation.

This course will provide the foundational knowledge to enable new and existing Directors to understand their duties and responsibilities and to make an effective contribution to their organisation’s Board.
