portWest has released the ‘Strategic Priorities for WA (Western Australia) Sport’, a document outlining 11 strategic priorities across the themes of Capability, Access, and Innovation.

The document is aimed at guiding and supporting the WA sport industry through to 2024 to address the challenges and capitalise on the opportunities within the changing landscape of sport in WA.

SportWest said the document took a targeted approach to identify the key priorities and the practical support required from stakeholders to progress community sport in Western Australia.

The 11 strategic priorities were developed under the themes of Capability (developing the people and the organisations who support the industry), Access (improving access to sport participation opportunities for the community), and Innovation (growing a sport sector that embraces knowledge, collaboration, data and technology).

SportWest chair, Michael Beros, said the themes of Capability, Access, and Innovation were developed through a consultation process with the sport industry in WA, where the most important opportunities and issues the industry was facing were identified, narrowed into seven key challenges considered to be the most pressing.

“With the outbreak of COVID-19 in early 2020, the sporting landscape changed markedly during the development of this strategy,” Beros said.

“Seeing usually bustling playing fields sitting empty on a Saturday morning or the closed sign outside our pools and other sport venues, has highlighted the devastating impact that COVID has had on our sporting communities.

“The development of the Strategic Priorities for WA Sport is the first of its kind in Western Australia and has been developed by the industry, for the industry.

“I encourage everyone involved in the coordination of community sport in Western Australia to support the document and understand the role they can play to progress the achievement of priorities.

“Now more than ever, sport has a powerful opportunity to bring West Aussies together and reconnect our communities.

“Become a driver of change and let’s work together to create the opportunities that will ignite our tomorrow,” he said.
