STARCLUB is an Office for Recreation and Sport (ORS) Club Development Program that has been specifically designed for use by sport and active recreation clubs of all sizes. A STARCLUB is a well run club where quality coaches and officials work alongside valued volunteers in a safe and welcoming environment. STARCLUB focuses on what your Club needs to do to ensure they are complying with current legislation, member protection and other important issues. The program is valuable for your club whether you believe your club is already a STARCLUB or has some improvements to be made.
STARCLUB club’s will also be recognised by the government and other organisations that value the role that well run community clubs play in our community. Clubs and Associations that have completed STARCLUB or have registered with STARCLUB will also be given preference for Active Club Grants through the Office for Recreation and Sport.
The ORS in partnership with local councils, health services and community organisations has established a STARCLUB Field Officer program. Six STARCLUB Field Officers are currently operating in regions throughout South Australia, including:
- Fleurieu Peninsula &Kangaroo Island
- Limestone Coast
- Lower Mid North & Yorke Peninsula
- Mid North
- Whyalla & Port Augusta
The role of each Field Officer is to work closely with local sport and active recreation clubs, physical activity providers, local councils, health services and schools throughout their region to:
- Increase community participation in sport, active recreation and physical activity programs; and
- Improve the quality of sport, active recreation and physical activity opportunities.
