Sport and Recreation Victoria partners with a number of organisations and peak bodies to develop sport and recreation in Victoria on a state wide or regional basis to increase participation, equity, diversity and inclusiveness.
State sporting associations are responsible for the development of their sport within Victoria, from community participation through to high performance level
These organisations are acknowledged by Sport and Recreation Victoria for their important role in the sector and their contribution to creating opportunities to participate in sport and active recreation.
Regional sports assemblies provide volunteer support, information and training and development opportunities to local clubs in rural and regional Victoria
A state sporting association (SSA) is the pre-eminent governing body for a sport in Victoria.
State Sport and Recreation Bodies are classified as organisations active in the sport and recreation sector however do not govern a sport in the way a State Sporting Association does.
