We have an exciting year planned with our partners and members at Sport SA in 2018. Along with our usual operations, we are rolling out a few new initiatives that will help benefit your team.

Sport SA is beginning planning on a mentoring program which could feature a staff member from your organisation. We will be linking athletes, coaches and administrators with some of our finest South Australian sporting personalities. A significant opportunity for engagement across the board.

A Sport SA Blog featuring a monthly guest blogger to cover a range of topics throughout the year that will be useful no matter the focus of your organisation. Our first guest blogger is an author and one of the worlds best coaches! 

We will be creating digital content with our membership and sponsors,  featuring the big events and people within your organisation throughout the year. This will link with your SM platforms to create an extra buzz around your events and draw more traffic and activity through your website and SM pages.

We hope to collect further data in the coming weeks to help assist and advocate for our members.

Stay tuned, plenty more to follow!
