SportWest, in partnership with the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, is working to reinvigorate True Sport as an industry-led initiative for WA sport.
True Sport was first established in 2017 with a focus of supporting the industry to promote and live the values of sport to the wider community. It supports local sporting clubs and associations to promote the value of sport to our whole community by providing tools and resources that help clubs and associations embed eight values in their sport and to share the positive, good news stories that happen in sport every day.
True Sport’s values should be part of everyday life, both on and off the field. By embracing these values, teams, clubs, participants and officials can work together to create fun, fair and safe environments for one and all to participate in sporting activities.
SportWest is currently undertaking a review to help shape the future of True Sport as part of a long-term sustainable approach to enhance integrity, values and culture-based initiatives. At a later stage, there will be an industry-wide expression of interest to establish a reference group.
If you are interested in discussing your experiences or thoughts on True Sport, or have any recommendations around embedding the initiative in your sport, please contact Beth McCorkindale, who is leading this project on behalf of SportWest.
