Regional Sports Assemblies

The role of the Regional Sports Assembly Victoria is to do the groundwork of supporting grassroots sport & recreation clubs on behalf of Sport & Recreation Victoria in regional areas. This includes things such as:

  • Providing resources and assistance in grant writing and financial help
  • Facility and asset advice
  • Upskilling & advice on general club matters and overall club strategy
  • Club accreditation programs such as ‘Good Sports’, liquor licensing and any other regulatory matters
  • Council relationships and networking links
  • General advice and support as required

The contacts might not necessarily be exactly the right person to speak to specifically about club support, but they should be able to direct you towards the right person if need be. It will get you in the door of these organisations at the very least:

  • Sports Central (based in Ballarat and covering Bacchus Marsh & Ararat in particular): Tom McCarthy 
  • Wimmera Regional Sports Assembly (based in Horsham so perfect for that club): Nic Baird
  • Sports Focus (based in Bendigo): Jasmine Noske
  • Sports North East (based in Wangaratta and cover Mount Beauty): Tom Mitten 
  • GippSport (a few different bases, but for down Leongatha way, you would be after the Southern office at Inverloch): Michelle Harris  
  • Mallee Sports Assembly (Have an office in Mildura): Tanya Wild 

Check out the RSA’s websites and avail yourselves of the resources as needed. All of the RSA’s have websites and social media as well. Just search something specific like ‘Sports Focus Bendigo’ or ‘Mallee Sports Assembly’ to find it.

SRV & VicHealth fund and support RSA’s to be on the ground and doing everything they can for regional clubs and associations, so we encourage everyone to seek them out as needed and use them as the resource that the state government has created them to be.
