Government funded sports insurance for amateur sports people

The DLP believes that the Federal Government should cover the sports insurance costs for all amateur sport participants.


Such a scheme will make participation in high level amateur sport more affordable and should increase the participation rate among lower income families.

Greater involvement in sport helps break down political, racial and social economic barriers. It helps people live healthy lifestyles as well as building the community.

Covering the costs of sports insurance may only be a small move but its positive effect would be huge.
