Keeping It Going
Aboriginal People

The best outcome for sport organisations and participants at all levels is to make participation sustainable so that current and future generations can enjoy the benefits of sport and active recreation. Your sport can play a big part in supporting this movement at the grassroots level, by involving Aboriginal people in sport as participants, leaders, athletes and industry professionals.

Remember, building relationships with Aboriginal communities, with elders and community leaders, is a great way to understand the impact your sport has had, and sustain the involvement of Aboriginal people as participants in your sport.
