Teaching Sport to Children Discussion Paper

Consultation closed

The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) would like to thank the many individuals and organisations who provided feedback in response to the Teaching Sport to Children discussion paper. This consultation is now closed.

The ASC is committed to reinvigorating sport and physical activity in children’s lives by ensuring that the people who deliver physical activity to children are suitably prepared and supported in their roles.

The discussion paper was developed as part of a broader commitment to address the nationwide decline of sport in our communities and schools, and the increasingly low levels of physical activity of Australian children.

It remains available to view via the link below.
