Creating healthier communities through sport participation

Rochelle Eime

My name is Rochelle Eime, I am the Director of the Sport and Recreation Spatial research team. 

We are the largest source of sport participation data in Australia, with over 1 million sport records integrated each year.

Our research is used for a range of different organisations including government, state and national sporting associations and VicHealth.

It focuses on participation levels and trends, the value of sport, influences on involvement, health benefits and places to play.  (also shown on screen)

This information leads to better planning for facilities and participation programs so we can get more people active through sport. This is important because it contributes to healthier individuals and communities.
