Club Development Officers

Club Development Officers (CDO) span across metropolitan and regional Western Australia. They support sport and recreation clubs to be sustainable  and to deliver diverse opportunities for people to participate in physical activity in their local community in a safe and welcoming environment. 

The CDO program is a partnership with the Department and local governments. The aim, through the Club Development Framework is to create a collaborative approach to club development by connecting State Sporting Associations, Regional Sport Associations, local government and community organisations to provide leadership, education and training.
