New framework to help shape the future of sport and recreation

Valuing sport and recreation framework cover


The Victorian Government is developing a strategic framework for sport and recreation in Victoria, with the aim of strengthening the system and how the broader economic, health and community benefits arising from the sector can be maximised. 

This framework will set out the outcomes the Victorian Government wants to achieve through sport and recreation.

The Victorian Government has developed a discussion paper and background information to create the basis for broader consultation with the sport and recreation system in Victoria:

The discussion paper and background information provide context about:

  • the sport and active recreation system in Victoria
  • the benefits of sport and active recreation
  • the key issues facing sport and active recreation.

Key considerations include:

  • How can the sport and active recreation system meet future increased demand?
  • What are the key levers and methods needed to drive broader and more inclusive participation in sport and active recreation?
  • How can the sport and active recreation system support the increasing demand for participation in individual and unorganised recreation activities?
  • What are the biggest challenges and opportunities to the sustainability of the sector? What are the links and co-dependencies?
  • How can the community benefits of investment in high performance sport be maximised?
