Free sport workshop
THE Imbil sports community is being encouraged to take advantage of a free sport and recreation event management workshop on Wednesday November 24.
Sport Minister Phil Reeves said the workshop would greatly benefit local sport coaches, administrators, instructors and volunteers in the industry. “The forum will provide free training for participants on how to effectively plan events within their clubs,” Mr Reeves said.
“It will cover a range of topics including organising venues, permits, suppliers and logistics, seeking sponsorship, marketing and risk management. It will allow the sports community to successfully implement new practices within their community groups at a grass roots level.”
Mr Reeves said sport plays an important role in promoting healthy and active communities.
“It’s crucial we provide opportunities for Queenslanders to stay involved in sport for the long-term,” he said.
The Imbil workshop will be held from 6pm to 9pm at the Imbil RSL Hall, 127 Yabba Road, Imbil.
Light refreshments will be served and admission is free but bookings are essential.
You can register online at www.sportrec.qld.gov.au/workshops before Friday, November 19; call 3441 8170 for information.
