The Welsh Sports Association is the independent umbrella body which supports and represents the sport sector in Wales.
We understand the ‘sport sector’ to mean anyone involved in the business of sport and active recreation in Wales. As the collective voice for this sector in proactively advocating and influencing key decision makers, we also enable our members to become stronger, more successful and sustainable through providing a wide range of business support services.
Our members are at the core of our work, and as a representative organisation, we work collaboratively with them to ensure that our support services are designed with their specific needs in mind, so that we can set the sector up for both sustainability and success. Using evidence and insight to highlight the unique contribution that sport and active recreation makes to the physical, mental and economic well-being of society, we can showcase how sport and active recreation can provide a solution to a wide number of public policy issues.
The Vision of the WSA
Our Vision is for “A Vibrant Active, Nation“, and our Mission is to empower our members to be stronger and more successful, contributing towards a society fit for the future.
The Mission of the WSA
We will achieve this by:
- Leading Advocacy– An independent, collective voice
- Building Capability – Professional support, training and development
- Developing Resilience – Financial and organisational sustainability
Join the WSA and join a team of like-minded organisations. We capture the power of this team to reduce costs through collaboration and shared services, addressing common challenges through business solutions.
We are not here to develop or deliver sport, that is the job of our members.
We are here to strengthen and support our members – encouraging enterprise, innovation and growing potential so that we can promote prosperous and viable businesses within the sport and active recreation sector in Wales.
