Better business practices

These useful tips and resources will help with the day-to-day operation of sport and recreation organisations.

Junior sport

In this section you will find information on introducing children to sport, encouraging participation, equitable opportunities, the junior sport development model, developing a policy and links to statistics on junior participation and to the Australian Sports Commission's Active After Schools Program.

Good Sports and Healthy Eating (Food for Sport)

Sporting clubs and associations not only provide the opportunity for Queenslanders to get more active but they can also promote healthier food and drink choices amongst the club community. The Food for Sport guidelines have been used to create Good Sports + Healthy Eating, a simple system sporting clubs can use to introduce healthier choices for their canteens.

Drugs and sport

The use of performance enhancing substances is banned in Queensland for ethical, health and legal reasons.

Sports camps

We have high quality facilities that sporting groups love. Hire a court, host an event or come on camp—we have something to suit all needs.
