What is the Clearinghouse for Sport?

The Clearinghouse for Sport (Clearinghouse) brings together Australia’s leading sport and active recreation agencies. These agencies are working through the Clearinghouse—using Sport Australia as the principal information coordination point—to share knowledge and insights about sport, human performance, and increasing the levels of physical activity within our communities.

The Clearinghouse works to:

  • Identify and acquire information of relevance to the Australian sport and active recreation sectors;
  • Connect people in sport and active recreation with complementary expertise;
  • Inform Australian sport practitioners (such as athletes, coaches, physical educators, scientists, medical providers, researchers, administrators, students, facility managers, policy makers, volunteers, and sporting officials) about good and promising practice in sport and active recreation;
  • Provide Australian governments at all levels with comprehensive and policy relevant analysis of research relating to sport and active recreation, and its value to the community; and,
  • Provide Clearinghouse members with high quality information on sport, physical activity and active recreation.
