Sports Central is one of nine Regional Sports Assemblies operating throughout Victoria. Based in Ballarat, our organisation facilitates and supports participation in sport and active recreation across six shires in the Central Highlands region and is funded by Sport and Recreation Victoria, VicHealth and the Alcohol and Drug Foundation to deliver a range of programs.
Our core objectives are to:
- Increase participation in sport and active recreation
- Increase the capacity of sport and active recreation stakeholders
- Increase access and pathways to sporting opportunities
Sports Central has been funded through VicHealth’s Innovation Challenge: Sport to develop the Ballarat District FlexiGolf pass.
VicHealth is a pioneer in health promotion, the process of enabling people to increase control over and improve their health. VicHealth’s primary focus is promoting good health and preventing chronic disease.
By working together, Sports Central, VicHealth and our partners look forward to growing the Ballarat District FlexiGolf pass, so that it provides the holder with the opportunity to play with greater choice, flexibility and freedom, whilst being a part of something more than just an occasional round of golf.
