The sport, fitness and recreation industries play a crucial role in the health and wellbeing of Australians. The positive impact they have on the health of the population, and by extension, our economy, cannot be underestimated. As well as physical health, the industry promotes mental health of individuals and the health of society overall by building social cohesion and inclusion.

Workers in the sport, fitness and recreation (SFR) sector include those employed in the management of venues and facilities, such as aquatic centres, outdoor centres and camps.

They have a substantial depth of knowledge to plan, conduct and evaluate exercise training; provide leadership and guidance to clients and other staff; and deal with unpredictable situations applying defined guidelines and procedures from the fitness industry and the organisation.

They work independently or with limited guidance from others and use discretion to solve non-routine problems, including monitoring and managing business activities to operate efficiently and profitably.
