Further to our discussions on the slide in the game here in Australia, why is squash not involved in this very program designed to assist the growth of sports ? Quote : "Membership growth The Australian Government's sports policy, Backing Australia 's sporting ability – a more active Australia , gave the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) a clear direction to focus on increasing participation in organised sport, particularly at the club and school levels. The policy also seeks to find new ways of establishing partnerships between sport and business to enhance the sustainability of participation growth. The ASC's Targeted Sports Participation Growth Program achieves these objectives. It is a three-way partnership between government, business and sport. The program targets a small number of sports for special support, to grow their business by expanding active membership in clubs and associations. By targeting mostly more popular sports with an already extensive club infrastructure, the ASC aims to achieve significant growth in the number of people of all ages participating in grassroots sport. The ASC’s approach is to work actively in partnership with the targeted sports to deliver a program of sustainable participation growth. The ASC provides both financial and service support to sports. The service support includes access to ASC resources, programs and the expertise of its Sport Performance and Development Group. The following sports currently receive ASC support for their targeted participation programs: Australian Football Athletics Baseball/Softball Basketball Cricket Cycling Hockey Men's Golf Women’s Golf Gymnastics Lawn Bowls Netball Rugby League Rugby Union Sailing Surf Life Saving Surfing Swimming Tennis Touch Football VolleyballHow to add images to Members' Forum posts and replies here...
