Do you want to make new friends in your local community, get fit and have fun by joining a local sporting team?
Australia is by and large a ‘sports mad’ nation. Around 78% of adults (15 and over) and over 62% of children (outside of school hours) participate in activities, including team sports such as football (of all codes) and activities like aerobics, water sports, or just going to the gym. If you can name it, it's a good bet that someone in Australia is playing it.
Because of the enthusiasm that so many Australians have about sport, The Salvation Army runs a range of sporting centres and activities to suit all ages, cultures and levels of fitness. We try to cater for those who may be new to an area and want to make new friends, for children in disadvantaged situations who can grow through team building, and for all who just want to make new friends, have a bit of fun and stay fit at the same time.
Many local Salvation Army corps (churches) run sporting and other recreational activities. Because these change over time, it is best to contact your closest centre to see which activities are running. Click here for a full list of Salvation Army Corps.
