Indigenous Softball Program

Softball Australia and our Member States have a long and proud history of promoting and delivering softball to Indigenous communities. Our Indigenous Softball Program produces positive health and social outcomes by providing female and male Indigenous Australians of all ages and abilities with opportunities to participate in softball – as players, coaches, umpires, administrators and volunteers. With softball generally recognised as the preferred sport of Indigenous women, and becoming increasingly popular amongst Indigenous men, we are committed to expanding softball programs in targeted urban, rural and remote areas across Australia.

We have been proactive in developing relationships and working with Indigenous communities and a variety of other interested or key stakeholders, including the Australian Government, the Australian Sports Commission, State Sport and Recreation Departments, National Aboriginal Sporting Chance Academy and Red Dust.
