The Welcome Sports Festival is kicking off from 6 – 7 March to allow Brisbane and Toowoomba locals to connect with sporting clubs and communities in their area, experience sports activities, cultural food and music.
This is a chance to give people an opportunity to try their hand at AFL, Netball, Football, Tennis and other sports in a fun and inclusive environment.
“Sport is a fun way to stay healthy and active, but it also connects communities and provides opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds to meet, create new friendships, build new skills, play and share experiences,” said Christine Castley, CEO of Multicultural Australia.
The Festival will also launch the Connecting Through Sport program, a free four-week sports training program that will introduce families to multi-sports within their local area and provide participants with an avenue to develop their sporting skills. “We especially want to provide pathways for new Queenslanders to integrate into the community and unlock their potential, no matter what their current sporting talent is,” said Ms Castley.
