Physical activity is an essential part of every child's physical and social development. As such, all children should have access to regular, well-organised sporting and recreational activities. In Queensland, many activities are available through the school curriculum and through school and community sport and recreation clubs.
Most sports have programs specifically designed for Juniors – AFL AusKick, Netball Net-Set-Go and Volleyball’s Spike It program are all examples. Further information on Junior sport programs are available directly from the relevant State Sporting Organisation.
The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) has a Junior Sport Framework resource that aims to assist sporting organisations to build safe, fun, quality and inclusive environment for the delivery of junior sport. To find out more about the Junior Sport Framework, visit the Australian Sports Commission.
