Softball Australia celebrates NAIDOC week

NAIDOC week is upon us and it’s a great opportunity to announce Softball Australia’s commitment to Indigenous Australians in 2015-16 through the Indigenous Softball Program – Health through Softball.

With the support of the Australian Government through the Indigenous Advancement Strategy, Softball Australia and its Member States will utilise softball as a vehicle to improve the health and wellbeing of Indigenous Australians throughout Australia, in particular NT, Qld, WA and SA.

Throughout the year, Softball Australia will support the establishment of a softball competition for Indigenous men and women in Wadeye NT, the Murri Women’s Softball Tournament in Ipswich Qld, The Far North West Sports League in the APY Lands and various initiatives in WA including the Breaking the Cycle Softball Tournament for Indigenous girls in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands.

NAIDOC week aims to promote the celebration of the rich history, culture and all accomplishments of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
