The land on which the South West Sydney Academy of Sport is located, and where our athletes train and compete is the traditional land of the Dharawal people.

In paying our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging, and with a spirit of reconciliation and recognition of the Traditional owners of Country, the Academy implements a cultural program for its Indigenous athletes within its current sport program offerings.

In addition, as a part of the broader Regional Academies of Sport (RASi) partnership with UAA, the Academy conducts an annual UAA Indigenous Talent Identification Day, which takes place throughout the second half of each year throughout the South West Sydney region.

Read below for more information on these exciting opportunities for Indigenous Athletes within the Academy Sport Programs, South West Sydney and Dharawal community.
