National Aboriginal Sporting Chance Academies



The National Aboriginal Sporting Chance Academies aim to use sport and sport based activities to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth to stay in school, increase their self-confidence, and create better post school opportunities.

The academies are based in South Sydney (Alexandria, Tempe and Marrickville High Schools) and central New South Wales (Dubbo College South Campus, Dubbo College Delroy Campus, Narromine and Wellington High Schools).

The objectives of the academies are to: 

Students participate in many activities including referee and strapping courses, the bronze medallion, first aid courses, careers programs, traditional Indigenous games, coaching, work experience programs, sport and recreation camps, local industry tours, NAIDOC events, and the Vibe Alive cultural festival.

The academies are partially funded by the Australian Government Department of Education , Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR).
