Veteran Sport Australia

Supporting the health and wellbeing of veterans and their families through sport and recreation

Welcome to Veteran Sport Australia

Sport is a rewarding part of life for many Australians, but for our veterans it can be much more.

Veteran Sport Australia has been established to improve the health and wellbeing of veterans and their families, right across Australia.

As a central hub of information and support, the program aims to make it easy to connect with sport and recreation programs and provide a positive experience through the support offered to participants along the way.

We encourage all veterans and their families to contact us and see how we can help.
