First Nations Australians

Australia is made up of hundreds of diverse First Nations Australians, each with their own culture, language, beliefs and practices.

Sport is the ultimate cultural community connector and can contribute to reducing the physical and mental health challenges that these communities currently face.

That is why it is important for clubs to implement strategies for the inclusion of First Nations Australians.

Programs and interventions that are forced or imposed without significant consultation, are unlikely to benefit First Nations Australians or the broader community.

Community-led initiatives and healthy, active role models are important first steps, to increase First Nation Australians' participation in sport.
