Whitehorse Sport and Recreation Reference Group

The Whitehorse Sport and Recreation Reference Group (WSRRG), made up of 10 appointed community members and two Councillors, provides Council with advice and guidance on the future of sport and recreation development within the City of Whitehorse. 

The WSRRG provides a mechanism for Council to consult with key stakeholders from sport and recreation activity groups within the City of Whitehorse, seek specialist opinion and enable community participation in sport and recreation-related issues, initiatives, policies and strategies.

The WSRRG has played a key role in assessing nominations for the Whitehorse Sport and Recreation Awards, contributed content to the AllSports Newsletter, and has provided guidance and support to Council officers in relation to a number of plans and policies impacting sport, recreation and physical activity in Whitehorse.
