MISSION STATEMENT -

To provide, promote and progress sport and recreation in Blackall by the formation of a cohesive group.  This group aims to maximise Council funding as well as gain full support of Council and Community, by developing and providing better communications, coaching, training opportunities and facilities by not duplicating. 

HISTORY -

The Blackall Multipurpose Sport & Recreation Association was formed in August 1999, through open community meetings.  The group began a process of planning to identify what their needs were.  This plan resulted in the "Community Sports Development Plan". 

The Association identified 5 key issues that are integral to the development of sport and recreation activities and events.  These key issues are;  Events, Storage, Equipment, Training and Capital Infrastructure.

ASSISTANCE -

The Association was formed to become an umbrella group for the individual sporting and recreational groups in Blackall.  Each member benefits from becoming a member. The Association assists in gaining financial assistance from local and external resources.

The funding that is available is utilised within the 5 key issues, these issues define the areas in which the clubs are lacking support and development.  We also provide administration assistance to all member clubs and assist in promotion and advertising of sport and recreation events and activities.
