Beatball now in Kwinana
NSA launches Beatball in Kwinana & Rockingham!
NSA are proud to be offering our award winning Beatball Program in Kwinana and Rockingham as a result of a successful funding grant from the Criminal Property Confiscations Grant ! Securing this funding means we are able to provide a worthwhile and proven community program to youth who would otherwise have limited options for weekend entertainment and healthy socialising.
NSA have been aware for sometime that the Aboriginal community in the Kwinana and Rockingham areas have had limited community programs on offer after hours and on weekends. It has been our focus and desire to respond to this need and provide an engaging program that offers youth somewhere to go and enjoy some healthy physical activity.
NSA All Aboriginal Swim Team take on the Rottnest Channel Swim
2014 NSA All Aboriginal Relay Team conquer the Rottnest Channel Swim
History has been made at this year’s Rottnest Channel Swim event with the first ever All Aboriginal team, The NSA All Aboriginal Relay team competing and successfully finishing the Rottnest Channel Swim in just under 7 hours!
The 2014 NSA All Aboriginal Relay Team which comprised of 2 woman and 2 men aged between 18-45years, were motivated to take on this noteworthy challenge not only for the personal and physical challenge but most importantly to inspire other members of the Aboriginal community to reach for large goals through positive role modelling.
The NSA team members were recruited from the wider Aboriginal community, with all 4 swimmers coming from a very recreational swimming background with little or no open water experience prior to commencing the preparation program.
