Australian Sports Professionals Association launches 2021 National Sports Census

Australian Sports Professionals Association launches 2021 National Sports Census
September 6, 2021

Aiming to capture a national perspective of the state sports industry by those who are actively engaged in it, the Australian Sports Professionals Association (ASPA) has launched its third annual National Sports Census.

Covering volunteers, employees and academics irrespective of their role or organisation - club, state or national sporting organisation, non-profit or private enterprise, a ASPA spokesperson emphasised that “it doesn't matter if you work for a state, territory or national sporting organisation, sports business, council, industry body, or other organisation within Australian sport - the Census will capture everyone's sentiment.

“The information captured in the Census will help us understand a truly national perspective of the Australian Sports Industry, and will empower everyone in sport - whether they are a graduate in sports management or a long term industry veteran, to have their say and to have their perspective acknowledged.

“The results are anonymous and the aggregated information will be made available to all ASPA members as well as the sports federations - SportWest, Sport NSW, QSport, Sport SA & Vicsport - to help drive discussions and growth for the industry.”

Completing the Census will take less than five minutes.

ASPA is an industry association for individuals who work, volunteer or study in sport in Australia - all the way from club volunteers and paid administrators of small state/territory sports to senior executives and Board members of large national sports.
