Sports First Aid Course - Sunday 20th of September 2015
Sport SA delivers a First Aid course designed for sport. The Sports First Aid course is equivalent to the current Provide First Aid HLTAID003 (replaces Senior First Aid) that is the standard nationally accredited First Aid course. However the difference with the Sport SA course is that it is contextualised to our Industry. It is completely sport related. All scenarios and practical activities relate to sport so that when the need arises you are confident and qualified to respond to situations within your sporting organisation or club.

Change of date and venue - 2015 KPMG Celebration of South Australian Sport
Due to the recent announcement of the Test Cricket in Adelaide to be held on Friday the 27th of November, we have been forced to move the Awards Dinner from Adelaide Oval to the Adelaide Convention Centre.
To avoid a clash with the Test Cricket, we have also changed the date to Wednesday 25th November.
We are confident that the 2015 KPMG Celebration of South Australian Sport Gala Dinner on Wednesday 25th November at the Adelaide Convention Centre will once again be successful and we hope you are able to join us!

South Australian Sports Museum
The 2015 Pacific School Games are being hosted by Adelaide! This event provides opportunities for around 4000 school-aged students to represent their state, territory or country and participate in nine different sports at the highest level. It is the flagship event of School Sport Australia, which provides educational opportunities for Australian and international students through the conducting of games in a range of sports. As the host city, we want to make this event spectacular and the envy of all previous host cities. Sport SA is looking for volunteers to make this event, the best ever!

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.
