Not only do South Australians undertake sport and active recreation for enjoyment but its benefits for individuals, communities and the State as a whole, in terms of social, health and economic outcomes is now well documented.
The Office for Recreation and Sport (ORS) plays an important role in ensuring all South Australians have the opportunity to participate by supporting sport and recreation organisations to be sustainable, ensuring that high quality facilities and playing grounds are available, and making certain that our elite athletes are given every chance to succeed and inspire.
The current and future focus of ORS has been documented in its new Strategic Plan covering the period 2013-2015.
ORS Executive Director Paul Anderson, said the plan contains some exciting goals such as developing a state of the art, high performance facility for the South Australian Sport Insititute's (SASI's) elite athletes, using targeted approaches to industry development and delivering better places for all South Australians to participate and perform in sport and active recreation.
"This plan is a working guide for us and a roadmap for success we can measure," he said.
"We look forward to working to provide not just sport and recreation programs and facilities, but also in achieving health and community building outcomes that we know can occur through participation and involvement in sport and active recreation."
