COMMUNITY SPORTS PROGRAM
Sports have the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sports can create hope, where there was once only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination. –
“WE ARE ONE WITH FOOTY”
Currently under construction, this program is designed to simultaneously introduce people from a range of diverse backgrounds and cultures to Australian Rules Football whilst also working alongside established Football clubs to develop their capacity to be fully inclusive.
Working with the participants will take the form of three different components:
1. Introduction to Football and culture
2. Women and Football
3. Skills Clinics
Working with local Football clubs will entail: developing an awareness of cultural differences engagement of players, officials and supporters development of an ongoing, sustainable plan to ensure long term inclusiveness.
