3. Strengthen pathways from junior sport to grassroots community sport, right through to elite and professional sport.

5. Identify opportunities to increase and diversify the funding base for sport through corporate sponsorship, media and any recommended reforms, such as enhancing the effectiveness of the Australian Sports Foundation.

All members of the community are invited to attend the public forums – to be held in the following locations:
