To increase physical activity rates, we need to do sport differently

In partnership with VicHealth and the La Trobe University Centre for Sport and Social Impact, Vicsport is coordinating this forum to unpack Doing Sport Differently – six key principles that guide the design and delivery of sport-based programs that target less-active people through social and flexible sport.

In attending the forum, you will have the chance to:

  • Hear first hand from managers and deliverers of social sport programs led by state sport associations and regional sports assemblies.
  • Discuss ways to apply these insights to current or new programs in your organisation.
  • Network and collaborate with sport and health organisations working towards the common goal of increasing health through physical activity.

This forum has been organised with the support of Wyndham City, targeting professionals and volunteers from state sport associations, regional sports assemblies, sport clubs, leagues and associations, local governments, health promotion and health services.
