Partnerships Program - Registration of Interest

The Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing is excited to announce the opening of the Registration of Interest process for the new Partnerships Program set to be announced in early 2021.

The Partnerships Program will look to respond to the priorities highlighted within Game On: Getting South Australia moving initiative. This grant program will create opportunities for collaboration between sport and recreation stakeholders, government and non-government bodies, and the for-profit and not-for-profit sector to enable to build a more active State.

The Partnerships Program encourages innovation, the use of research and technology, and supports the adaption and evolution of sport and recreation programs, services and approaches, placing additional focus on active recreation that provides everyone with an opportunity to be physically active and move.

Prior to a formal grant application process opening in early 2021, a Registration of Interest is now open to collect information on possible projects or initiatives that support Game On. If the applicant allows, these project details will be viewable on this page to support new partnerships to strengthen potential applications.

If you or your organisation believe you have a project that will address any of the following Game On opportunities, we encourage you to register your interest - Registration of Interest

  • Lifelong physical activity – Making it a key priority, easy and non-negotiable social norm to be physically active and move every day.
  • Growth in active transport – Improving accessibility, connectivity or safety of active transport such as walking and cycling.
  • Active young people – Young people are physically active and physical literacy is valued, accessible and supported.
  • Affordable sport and recreation opportunities – Anyone, anywhere can access affordable activities across all lifestyles and pathways to be physically active.
  • Sustainable sport and recreation sector – Collaborative and strategic initiatives that address systemic issues relating to the cost of delivering activities.
  • More and better trained volunteers – Volunteers are supported and have the appropriate skills which meet the needs of the community to encourage physical activity and movement.

Examples of eligible Game On projects could include;

  • A group of local government councils coming together to provide a series of new programs which support older adults to maintain physical fitness.
  • Several small state sport or recreation organisations partner with a professional services provider to develop shared administration systems that are sustainable and improve efficiencies and effectiveness.
  • An indoor sport or recreation organisation partners with a disability provider to develop a program offering regular opportunities for a variety of activities for people with a disability.
  • A regional council partners with the high school governing council, local recreation centre and local business to develop an after-school program for youth with rewards and incentives for physical activity.
  • A for-profit technology company partners with two aged-care organisations to deliver movement gaming experiences for clients to increase their levels of physical activity.

Blackwood Community Recreation Association Inc."No Falls" Pilot ProjectThe objective of the program is for older adults (55yrs+) to maintain a functional and independent life free from the concern of a life changing fall. ‍
The 10 week program involves an initial assessment with our Exercise Physiologist followed by a weekly hands on exercise class with a qualified fitness leader. At the conclusion of the 10 weeks each participant's progress will be reviewed and they will be encouraged to join a suitable on going program (eg Strength For Life) or to repeat the "No Falls" program if more appropriate.

Additional support will be provided by way of in home exercises to consolidate the work done in class as well as providing educational material and information about other community support services that may be available to them.

Participants will be able to join the pilot project for free, with the grant funding covering the cost of the Exercise Physiologist, Exercise Leader, equipment and marketing for the initial 10 week pilot. On-going charges for this program will be commensurate with similar programs to maintain affordability.

Jupiter Creek Pony Club IncAcquiring our own show jumping equipmentWe currently borrow all of our showjumping equipment from the owner of the property we use.

It would be fantastic to have our own.

We are a pony club with 35 riding members and a part of PCASA Southern Zone Inc.

We run lessons & training as well as competitions for riders of all ages.

Many of our riders are members of the State teams which next year, 2021, will represent SA at PCA Nationals in Victoria. To have our own jumps would be a great asset too.

SEDA College SAActivating student volunteers in the Sport & Recreation IndustrySEDA College SA is a senior secondary school based at different locations across Adelaide. Through partnership with our sporting partners, we engage, educate and empower students through the context of their chosen sport (AFL, basketball, cricket, football and netball). Students engage in industry experiences such as volunteering, Community Work Days and Structured Workplace Learning.

Through the establishment of this program, SEDA College SA seeks to provide greater opportunities for students to plan and deliver community programs to promote healthy and active lifestyles. The funding will be used to employ a full-time or part-time 'Community Programs Coordinator', who will work with students to plan programs to meet the needs of community groups (for example, families, primary schools, aged care providers, disability groups and remote community groups). The programs could range from multi-sport clinics for pre-school children to 'Come 'n' Try' days or walking/jogging events. The funding will also be used to purchase resources required for the delivery of these programs.

The aims of the project include:

- activation of student volunteer groups in the sporting industry

- increased student agency within the College

- promotion of lifelong physical literacy and active lifestyles within the community

- increased participation opportunities on behalf of our sporting partners

We seek to work with ORSR to establish this program and find the best ways to meet the needs of the community.

Mr Ashley Jennerashleyj@sedacollege.sa.edu.au
Woodville South Cricket ClubWomen's CricketWoodville South Cricket Club is looking to start next season having Women and Girls teams in both Junior and Senior divisions. Cricket has for a long time been seen as a mostly male sport, however we know recently as seen at First Class level that Women's sport is hugely popular.

We have noticed that after school that there were not many pathways into organised sport for women until recently. We want to support Women and girls continuing to be active during their life and supporting a healthy lifestyle.

To do this we would need assistance to promote the teams available, build enough interest to get a side together, potentially recruit another coach.

We want to ensure our club is open to the whole community and provide ways of getting active to the whole community.
