Club Development Program


The state-wide Club Development Officers' Scheme is an initiative of the WA Department of Sport and Recreation and is implemented in partnership with a number of local government authorities, including the Shire of Broome.

The Shire of Broome’s Club Development Officer supports sport and recreation club volunteers through communication, education and acknowledgement. The aim, through the Club Development Framework is to create a collaborative approach to club development by connecting State Sporting Associations, Regional Sport Associations, local government and community organisations to provide leadership, education and training.
