Council Information Forum for Sporting & Recreation Clubs

In June 2017, Council hosted a successful Information Forum attended by representatives of a large range of local sporting and recreations clubs from across the region.

The aim of the forum was to help clubs recognise the importance of obtaining Star Club accreditation and developing strategic plans for their long term infrastructure projects.

Recreation and sporting clubs continually look to all three levels of government as well as the private sector for financial assistance with their projects. Their ability to secure funding is significantly enhanced if they work within the Star Club framework and take a long term strategic view with their planning. It is in everyone’s interests for our clubs to be better prepared when they are seeking potential funding from government and/or corporate bodies.

The forum provided participants with valuable tips and advice from the Limestone Coast Local Government's Star Club Field Officer, Tony Elletson; McLaughlin Park Sports Incorporated Chairman, Craig Tunkin; and Council's Executive Leadership Team.

Insurance Scheme for Community Groups

Public Liability and accident insurances to protect against unexpected events or injuries to volunteers are significant issues for community and not for profits groups.

To support not for profit groups in the community, Local Government has taken an active role in developing a specialist insurance scheme in South Australia that meets the real needs of community groups.

LCIS provides an extensive range of insurance products to specifically suit community and not for profit groups including:

* Public Liability Insurance

* Associations Liability Insurance

* Personal Accident (Volunteer) Insurance

* Business Package Insurance

The premiums offered by LCIS have been developed to reflect the relatively low risk activities of most community groups and are calculated by identifying the principal activity of each group, their revenue size and the number of volunteers within the group.

LCIS can cover

Community and Not For Profit Groups who -

* Provide services to the broader community.

* Have annual turnover/funding less than $5 million.

* Do not distribute profits to its members.

* Comprised mainly of volunteers.

* Provide a public benefit or serve a charitable purpose.

Some examples of the type of community groups that are eligible for cover via LCIS are -

Senior Citizen Groups

Theatrical & Dance groups

Resident & Progress Associations

Hall Management Committees

Sporting Groups

Craft Groups and Fairs

Fundraising Groups

Community Park Committees

Social Clubs

Resources & Landcare groups

Arts Groups & Galleries
