Veteran Sport Australia

We support 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 makes it easy for veterans and their families to connect with individual and team sport, one-off competitive events, camps and multi-sport Games. We provide pathways to coaching and mentoring training and access to financial assistance for those who cannot afford to participate.

We encourage all veterans and their families to improve their lives through being active and connected through sport.
