About the consultation
The Education, Sport and Culture Department (ESC) consulted Islanders who take part, volunteer for, or watch sport in the Island on how sport could develop over the next ten years.
The Sport Strategy Consultation Document set out the current position and asked four key questions:
- do we need to make any changes?
- should there be a new co-ordinating organisation for sport?
- do we need a new model for sport development?
- do you think the States should continue to run sports facilities or should other options be explored?
The green paper also asked the public for general suggestions and looks at issues such as artificial pitches, funding pressures and sports events.
The consultation covered competitive sport, organised and team activities and also the simple but important activities such as walking, cycling.
The aim of the consultation was to collect opinions before drawing up a plan that will set out how sport in Jersey could develop over the next ten years.
A five-year vision for the development of sport in Jersey was launched on 14 October 2013.
‘Fit For The Future’ a five year strategy for sport and physical activity in Jersey, which covers general physical activity as well as organised sport, aims to use the 2015 NatWest Island Games in Jersey as a springboard for greater interest and participation in sport.
