The Confederation of Australian Sport generally agrees with the Australian Government about the enormous contribution and benefits that sport and a physically active lifestyle makes to the Australian community.

CAS also shares the concern that the significant role played by sport in establishing our nation’s identity, culture and international sporting reputation is being challenged by the demands of modern life and an increasingly sedentary lifestyle, particularly amongst our children.

CAS will provide an independent voice on current and emerging issues and will also be available to provide advice to government on issues relating to community participation. Policy position statements and submissions will be evidence based and developed to support the major issues facing the industry and community.

CAS will develop an effective network to engage in Issues Analysis and will identify Priority Issues.

CAS Platforms and Submissions will be available for review and comment.
