"The Clearinghouse for Sport (Clearinghouse), is an Australian sport sector information and knowledge sharing initiative. The Clearinghouse will seek to achieve the following: Collect and disseminate audience-appropriate information of relevance to the sport sector; Inform sport practitioners (such as athletes, coaches, physical educators, scientists, researchers, administrators, volunteers, officials, etc.) about good practice and promising practice; Provide Australian governments with comprehensive and policy relevant, analysis and synthesis of information and research relating to sport, and the value of sport to the Australian community; and, Provide the Australian community with high quality information on sport, physical activity, and active recreation. The Clearinghouse is being implemented over a number of development phases between 2011/12 and 2013/14. During this time the Clearinghouse website will expand its services progressively to include new audiences and a range of priority information resources. It is important to note the Clearinghouse website is operating under ’Beta Release’ conditions - that is, a limited release of an online product with a goal of resolving existing usability and other technical issues before full implementation scheduled for 30 June, 2014"
