PCYC Nations of Origin Tournament 2017

July 14th, 2017

The Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility hosted PCYC’s Nations of Origin – Football Five5 yesterday with 8 Indigenous nations represented from across Northern NSW.

The event for 13-15 boys and girls is an annual program aimed at bringing together the aboriginal nations throughout NSW, and upholds PCYC’s key components: reconciliation, education, cultural identity and sport.

Rosmairi Dawson, PCYC Club Manager at Morisset, commented on the incredible comradery that all teams showed throughout the event.

“It’s about a day of healthy fun, good competition and leadership and comradeship with fellow aboriginal nations of NSW.”

“This year has been huge. We’ve had Netball, Rugby League and Football 5’s. The kids love it, and of course, there was healthy competition as well. The competitive spirit was alive and well at Speers Point today!”

One of the outcomes of the event was the need to support the development of programs and activities that build relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Aboriginal young people.

Each team comprised of 5 players of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background and 3 of non-aboriginal descent.

The Aboriginal nations represented on the day included: Worimi, Biripi, Awabakal, Darkinjung, Wonnarua, Wiradjuri, Dunghutti and Tharawal

All players, coaches and spectators had an enjoyable day with PCYC hosting another successful event at LMRFF.
