The Tasmanian Government appointed three Regional Sport Coordinators to support the commitment and goal of becoming the healthiest state by 2025.
As part of the Department for Education, Children and Young People, the Coordinator's provide support and advice to schools and colleges to facilitate increased and sustained participation in physical activity and sport among school students. The team's aim is to:
- increase physical activity and sport options for students
- improve access to current and future physical activity and sport opportunities by supporting schools and communities to break down key barriers preventing student participation
- support key transition periods for students to promote continued participation in physical activity and sport
By engaging and collaborating with staff and local communities, the Coordinators aim to share information and resources, build knowledge networks and provide targeted support to facilitate improved student participation and engagement levels in physical activity and sport.
