VACSAL – JUNIOR FOOTBALL AND NETBALL CARNIVAL

Oct 3 2018

VICTORIAN ABORIGINAL COMMUNITY SERVICES ASSOCIATED LIMITED

The Victorian Aboriginal Community Services Association Limited is pleased to work with the Fitzroy Stars Football Netball Club who will host this year’s Statewide Junior Football & Netball Carnival. VACSAL is a peak Aboriginal Community organisation delivering a range of government funded programs to support and assist children, young people and families as well as strengthening communities and culture. This carnival is for all Aboriginal communities of Victoria, providing an opportunity to gather and participate in friendly competition in a healthy and safe environment. This event serves to promote cultural ties, family participation, healthy lifestyle and showcasing our unique talents. VACSAL has also been fortunate enough to work with Sport and Recreation Victorian, Netball Victoria and AFL Victoria to ensure the carnival runs smoothly and for the VACSAL Statewide Junior Football Netball Carnival to be utilised as a means to identify talent in the Koorie community.

NETBALL VICTORIA

Netball Victoria is proud to be a part of the VACSAL State Wide Football Netball Carnival as the peak state body for netball. We exist to enrich Victorian communities through the sport of netball. We are responsible for the management and development of netball across Victoria and work to identify and meet the needs of netball players, coaches, umpires, officials, and volunteers, Associations, Leagues and Clubs.

AFL VICTORIA

AFL Victoria is a proud partner of this year’s VACSAL State Wide Football Netball Carnival. AFL Victoria’s Indigenous Programs aim to use football as a vehicle to promote a healthy lifestyle in Indigenous communities. It is also driven to encourage Indigenous boys and girls to take up football and help the champions and future role models of tomorrow succeed in the AFL. Our initiatives are designed to support Indigenous footballers where ever possible from their first taste of football in the NAB Auskick Program, right through until they reach senior competitions, whether that is as a player wanting to play the elite or community level, a coach or an umpire.
