Salisbury Sport and Recreation Network

The Salisbury Sport and Recreation Network welcomes community sport and recreation providers

The Salisbury Sport and Recreation Network was established as part of the City of Salisbury’s Sports Development Framework. The Network enables us to build strategic and sustainable partnerships that support growth and development of local sport in Salisbury providing opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and interests to participate in sport.

This program is unique and innovative to local government and will enhance the city of Salisbury’s investment in community sport.

A key component of the network will be to work collaboratively across both sporting and non-sporting communities to build stronger,  healthier and more active communities that work together through sport.

Past Events

Our feature presentation from the August Salisbury Sport and Recreation Network forum was from the Office for Recreation and Sport

V-Star - Need some help with finding and keeping your volunteers?

The Office for Recreation and Sport has recently developed a web tool to help you manage that vitally important and yet challenging part of your club which is:

  • one-stop
  • sport-specific
  • club-focused
  • SA-based
  • easy to navigate.

The new web tool is called V-STAR.
The City of Salisbury invited the developers of that resource from the Office for Recreation and Sport to provide for our sporting clubs a presentation on the practical use of the resource in finding and keeping your volunteers using the V-STAR Web Tool.
