Veteran Sport Australia
Supporting veteran health and wellbeing through sport.
Sport is a rewarding part of life for many Australians, but for our veterans it can be much more.
Whether overcoming trauma or disability, wanting to be healthy and connect with others, or looking to excel in elite competition, sport gives veterans of all ages and abilities the chance to improve their health and quality of life, make new friends and test themselves against the best.
Veteran Sport Australia connects veterans and their families with individual and team sport, one-off competitive events, camps and Games, like Invictus Games. It provides pathways to coaching and mentoring training, and access to financial assistance for those who cannot afford to participate.
We encourage all veterans and their families to join us in getting active and improving their lives through sport today.
Veteran Sport Australia is led by RSL Welfare and Benevolent Institution. Our aim is to help veterans of varying ability to utilise the healing power of sport.
Encouraged by Invictus Games Sydney 2018, the program launched nationally on 26 October 2018.
If financial barriers are stopping or restricting your involvement in sports, don’t worry, we’re here to help. As a veteran, you can get access to funding support from RSL DefenceCare, to help with equipment, fees or anything else needed to keep you active and involved.
