The Sport Connect program provides opportunities to connect with the growing field of community engagement through sport. Formerly known as the Sport and Development program, it brings together a comprehensive network of sport, community, education and government organisations, UniSA students and community volunteers to facilitate opportunities for participation and education centred on sport. UniSA has a strong track record of leadership in promoting sport in the community and in using sport to promote broader community development.
The program focuses on promoting community engagement, student engagement, research opportunities and pathways towards further education through sport participation.
The program focuses on community development principles, which provide opportunities for people at risk of social exclusion to participate in sport. The program encourages social cohesion and harmony, as well as fostering social connections across individuals, communities and organisations through sport. The program has a strong focus on social inclusion in areas with high proportions of refugees, newly-arrived migrants, indigenous people, and socio-economically disadvantaged families.
Through the Sport Connect program, we facilitate strong links with both Sport Development (SD) and Sport for Development (S4D) projects.
