Get your move on in your community

Find support and services for children and young people to be active in their community.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has challenged us to find new ways to be active. Now more than ever we all have an important role to play in supporting children and young people to be active and set them up for an active life.

Find and join sport and recreation groups in your local community

Getting involved with our local communities across Victoria is a great way to help get moving.

With 16,000 sports clubs across 9,500 community sports facilities run by 580,000 volunteers, Victorian kids and teenagers can get moving in a variety of ways all across our state.

Contact your local council

Local councils across Victoria offer a range of recreation centres and services to help you get your move on.

Your Local council can also point you in the right direction to contact sport and recreation groups in your neighbourhood.
