Free Technology Made Simple sports workshop in Noosa

The Noosa sports community can find out more about technology in the sport industry at the Bligh Government's free Technology Made Simple workshop on Monday 22 November.

Sport Minister Phil Reeves said athletes, coaches, teachers and parents would find the forum worthwhile, as it would cover current issues facing the sport and recreation industry.

"The workshop will provide some great tips on how to communicate with club members through modern means such as social networking sites by teaching easy website development and by discovering online tools," Mr Reeves said.

"There are so many different communication tools and avenues sport and recreation clubs can utilise.

"By coming along to the workshop, Noosa locals will have the chance to tap into a wealth of technology expertise."

Mr Reeves said that across Queensland, thousands of volunteers including coaches, teachers and parents devote hours of their own time to support and develop the sport they love.

"That's why these programs are vitally important to provide sport participants and their support teams with the skills they need to stay involved in their chosen sport," he said.

"The Bligh Government wants to ensure local sport and recreation organisations have the necessary tools and information to develop and thrive.

"Under the Government's Toward Q2: Tomorrow's Queensland commitment, we're committed to increasing the percentage of the population involved in volunteering, and one of the best ways to do this is to provide support for programs and services which build the skills and capacity of club volunteers.

"This workshop will also help the Government work towards its goal of helping Queenslanders become Australia's healthiest people by reducing obesity levels by one third by 2020.

"The Bligh Government has made the tough economic decisions to ensure we can continue to support local sport and recreation.

"Because of the strong leadership of the Bligh Government we are able to invest more in sport and recreation than any other state in the country."
