Sport Australia is committed to helping sports deliver clear aligned strategy and direction across all levels of the sport. We encourage national sporting organisations to develop unified and inclusive strategies in partnership with their key stakeholders that set the direction at all levels of the system.
Participation planning is the operational tool for bringing the aligned strategy to life. Start by building a strong planning foundation and carry it through the duration of the planning process to create a quality plan. It's also important to engage stakeholders in the planning process to shift the sport to the desired state.
The planning process
This planning process reflects the unique considerations of sporting organisations and the environment they operate in. The principles set the tone for the behaviours and actions and the steps are based on key questions to consider when creating a participation plan. Organisations have different planning needs and can use the step by step planning process to develop a comprehensive participation plan or focus in on specific steps or resources to enhance their plan.
