The National Diversity Championships encompass the National U15 Kickstart and the National U15 All Nations Cup.
The 2016 National Diversity Championships will be held at the Tony Ireland Stadium in Townsville from 3rd to 8th of April.
The championships provide the pathway into our Flying Boomerangs and World Team programs.
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.
