Inclusion Awareness Workshop

Do you want to learn how to make your club’s activities more inclusive? Clubs of all types are invited to a FREE education workshop at Moyhu & District Youth Club on Sunday, 28 April at 1-3pm.

The workshop, hosted by Gymnastics Victoria, entitled ‘Creating a Positive Gymnastics Experience for Children on the Autism Spectrum’ is facilitated by a psychologist and early intervention specialist, and delivers an overview of autism spectrum conditions, understanding the function of challenging behaviours, practical strategies for managing challenging behaviours and tips for communication.

Although this workshop has been designed for the gymnastics community and uses some gymnastics specific examples, the vast majority of the content is transferable knowledge that would be valuable for any sports coach or administrator.

Balance the Board – 40% boards quota deadline July 1 2019

It’s time to get “on board” and make sure your organisation is best placed to meet the Victorian Government’s 40 per cent women on boards quota – deadline 1 July, 2019.

Is your organisation at Quota?

With just 4 months to go, it’s important to understand the steps you must undertake to ensure your organisation meets quota.  Sport and Recreation Victoria will apply the quota to organisations that receive funding through the Supporting Victorian Sport and Recreation program (state sporting associations, regional sports assemblies and state sport and recreation bodies).  VicHealth will also apply the quota to national and elite sporting organisations, with any new funding agreements made before July 1,  including a requirement that organisations commit to achieving to 40% quota.

There are a range of resources available via Vicsport, and you can contact us here at Sport North East on 03 5721 0200 or email felicity.munro@thecentre.vic.edu.au for support and information.
