The department provides a series of programs and grants to support Victoria's sporting sector.
Sport and Recreation Victoria is dedicated to supporting Victoria's sport and recreation sector, while inspiring Victorians to get active. Sport and Recreation Victoria works collaboratively with the not-for-profit, private and government sectors to improve the health and wellbeing of Victorians, build stronger and more connected communities, deliver economic growth and jobs and enhance liveability for all Victorians.
The Office of Women in Sport and Recreation works alongside Sport and Recreation Victoria to increase the number of women and girls participating in sport and active recreation, from grassroots through to senior leadership roles.

Active Victoria – A strategic framework for sport and recreation in Victoria 2022-2026
Active Victoria is our plan to strengthen the sport and recreation sector, boost participation and ensure every Victorian has the chance to be involved.
Change Our Game
The Victorian Government is committed to increasing the number of women and girls participating in sport and active recreation, from grassroots through to leadership roles.
The Change Our Game initiative aims to increase leadership and participation by women and girls by delivering on the nine recommendations outlined in the Inquiry into Women and Girls in Sport and Active Recreation outlined nine recommendations.
Fair Play Code
The Fair Play Code sends a loud and clear message – that bad behaviour, violence, cheating and intimidation has no place in sport and recreation in our state.
Through the Fair Play Code we are making sure that individuals, clubs, leagues and associations know what to do if they encounter bad behaviour both on and off the sporting field.
Sport and Recreation Victoria provides a wide range of grants and funding programs to increase participation and maximise the economic and social benefits provided by sport and recreation to all Victorians.
