Whitehorse City Council

Whitehorse Sport & Recreation Network

The Whitehorse Sport and Recreation Network provides Council with advice and guidance on the future of sport and recreation development within the City of Whitehorse.
The network is made up of Council officers from the Parks Planning and Recreation Unit and a maximum of 10 community representatives who are appointed for a two-year term.

Membership is open to individuals participating in sporting and recreation clubs or associations operating within the Whitehorse municipality.

Over the last few years the network has played a key role in assessing nominations for the Whitehorse Sports Awards, contributed to the Allsports Newsletter, and has provided guidance and support to Council officers in relation to the Recreation Strategy Plan.

The network has developed a guide for the recruitment and retention of volunteers in sporting and recreation clubs (click on link below to download).
