The Sport Industry can be separated into four basic avenues. – Aquatic, Outdoor recreation, Fitness,
& Sporting Games. There are various reasons people participate in these activities which determines
when, where, how & why they do so.
These influences may be influenced by cost, age, health, location, weather, social communication,
motivation, ability, or the country in which they live. There are therefore many associated industries
that are dependent on these activities, gyms, fields, coaches, medical, transport, supplements,
drinks, — to name a few.
The benefits of the Sport Industry are wide ranging. They may include social, camaraderie, physical &
mental health, relaxation, better productivity, fewer sick days, or decreased compensation claims.
These benefits are recognised as such by various Govt. bodies & are assisted via many funding
arrangements throughout Australia.
