Sport SA would like to help those affected by the Pinery bushfires, with the assistance of all sports associations and clubs of South Australia, by collecting new or used sports equipment (in good condition). We will donate the equipment to the sports clubs, families and schools who have been affected. We need your help to pass this message onto all people involved with sport in South Australia! Please share this post with as many people as you can and spread the word so we can help as many people as possible!

Sport SA is excited to announce a new partnership with Deakin University researchers to support Australia’s first and biggest study of men’s mental health and wellbeing during their late 20s and early 30s. The Men and Parenting Pathways (MAPP) Study will make an important contribution to supporting men and furthering our understanding of mental health risks during this stage of life.

Education and Sport Opportunities for Student Athletes
Sport SA and Athletes Dream Pty Ltd have signed a strategic alliance to activate and promote the importance of Athlete Career Development. Through this alliance, qualifying student athletes will receive opportunities to combine Education and Sport, particularly in North America. College scholarships in North America are sought after, hard to acquire alone and will change your life.
A sustainable lifestyle post sporting career is a key objective for any athlete. Without higher education too many athletes are experiencing a narrow pathway of opportunity in securing an enjoyable working future. Obtaining higher education is paramount in improving the skill set of an athlete, which provides long term returns of social and economic benefit to the communities that once supported the athlete.
