The South West has plenty on offer for sport and recreational enthusiasts. Known for its world class surfing, the South West is abundant in outdoor activities while offering many traditional sporting and recreation opportunities.
From the smallest of rural communities, to the larger regional centres, sport and recreation is one of the main social interactions within South West communities.
With close to 600 sporting and recreational clubs in the South West, meeting the needs of our evolving industry is a challenge taken on by the local staff at the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, South West.
Sport and Recreation (WA) is a division of the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
Funding from the Sport and Recreation (WA) for infrastructure, increasing participation and organisational development encourages the further development of sport and recreation in the South West.
In partnership with our local governments, the Club Development Network has developed the capacity of our clubs through workshops and seminars.
Supported by Sport and Recreation (WA), the South West Academy of Sport and athlete funding provides vital support to our developing talented athletes to reach their peak performance.
The Department works closely with a range of stakeholders in the South West region. These include local governments, the South West Development Commission, State Government agencies and not-for-profit organisations.
