Walking SA Leadership Development

Walking SA, as the peak body for recreational walking in South Australia, has received funding from The Office of Recreation, Sport and Racing to assist clubs in capacity building over this financial year.

We are embarking on a program to help you develop your club leadership skills base to maintain and grow your club walks program. Essentially – to get more people walking more often.

This project is being delivered in the following ways:

  1. Survey to determine need, complete the survey
  2. Leadership Development Workshop April, 2021 – tailored to recognised needs based on survey responses and club consultation
  3. Heavily subsidised places in Bushwalking Leadership SA courses for 2020/2021

For club members interested in participating, applications are through your club committee.  You can either go directly to the club, or get in touch with us indicating which club you belong to, and we will notify the club of your expression of interest.

Each club has a minimum of one 97% subsidised place on the Day Walk Course ($15 investment saving $495 discount), with limited spots available on the extensive Bushwalking Leadership Certificate ($50 investment saving a whopping $1370 – over 97% subsidised).  preference given to clubs running, or intending to run, overnight bushwalking events.

For individual members: The leadership project is for you too!  There are limited discounted places available on the leadership courses for individual members.  We also welcome your input on other aspects of the program. Please get in touch with project officer Rod: rod.quintrell@walkingsa.org.au to express your interest.
