2015 Diversity Championships

April 10 - 15, 2015
What are the National Diversity Championships?

The National Diversity Championships encompass the National U15 Kickstart and the National U15 All Nations Cup. 

The 2015 Championships are being held in Cairns at Cazalys Stadium. The Kickstart Championships is running into its 5th exciting year and the All Nations Cup is in its 2nd year.

The championships provide the pathway into our Flying Boomerangs and World Team programs. 

Why the Championships are important?

The Diversity Championships are an important pathway for our Diversity Programs, it provides talented participants for our Flying Boomerangs and World Team squads, umpires for our umpiring academies, and coaches for our coaching academy which is a unique opportunity to strengthen our game with people from culturally diverse backgrounds. 

The Championships will see over 200 participants from Indigenous and Multicultural backgrounds come together and compete at the week-long tournament, with an additional 70 plus Indigenous and Multicultural coaches, umpires, managers, physios and trainers as support staff. 

In addition, the cultural and social benefits beyond the games are many.
