Far West & Outback Sport Competitions Programs


The components of this project worked in unison to make a difference to the communities of the Far West of NSW. Our organisations objects are to Connect, Strengthen and Empower disadvantaged and marginalised communities and individuals by providing access to participation opportunities for sport and active recreation. This, along with other appropriate measures, is intended to assist communities to move toward improving the overall physical and mental wellbeing of their communities and individuals.

The project centered on 6 main activities:

  • Barwon Darling & Outback Rugby League and Tag Competitions

  • Mixed League Tag Competitions

  • Whole of Community Wellbeing Events

  • Kickstart the Healthier You Program

  • Pilot Youth Leadership Program

  • Remote and Isolated Community Wellbeing Events

The combined impact of the delivery of activities such as these over the course of a longer period of time is what cements the outcomes from each individual activity into a much larger strengthening of the community as a whole.

Due to flooding we were unable to hold the Ivanhoe event however this interview conducted at an event afterwards shows the importance of events like this for remote and isolated communities.
