Game On SA! It’s time to reap the benefits of physical activity. Game On is a State Government initiative to get South Australia moving. To change the inactivity levels, State and Local Government, the sport and recreation sector, clubs and community groups all have an important role to play.
South Australians are not active enough. The following figures show the percentage of South Australians that meet the National Physical Activity Guidelines.
Following a statewide consultation, the Game On expert panel was tasked with prioritising eight issues and providing a corresponding outcome for each issue. All outcomes seek to engage both inactive and active South Australians in more physical activity.
Game On is a long-term agenda that will require collaboration, partnerships and coordination across government and the sector. To achieve the vision of Game On, it will be necessary for all stakeholders to engage with and understand the issues.
Game On will be activated across the Government of South Australia by maximising departmental synergies in alignment with the plan’s recommendations. It is important to note that there are a number of organisations, businesses and groups that also have responsibilities in the listed areas highlighted in the full Game On report. Partnerships between the government and non-government sector will ensure the Game On outcomes are met.
The Partnerships Program has been created to support partnerships looking to implement projects that align with the Game On initiative, by addressing issues and barriers to physical activity and/or capitalising on opportunities to get people moving.
To achieve the Game On project objectives, the Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing actively sought community input to inform the Game On: Getting South Australia moving initiative, along with the the South Australian Sport and Recreation Infrastructure Plan and the Grants Review.
