Why get involved?
Sport is a fun way to stay healthy and active, but it also connects communities and provides opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds to meet, play and share experiences.
The CTS program also aims to develop the capacity of community clubs. Clubs benefit from receiving Cultural Awareness training and a Diversity Inclusion Action plan ably supported by Welcoming Australia.
Getting involved is easy! Sign up to a free four-week sports program with Connecting Through Sport! Complete the form here, and a CTS team member will be in touch.
