Although we’re nearing the end of NAIDOC Week, as a local Tasmanian sporting club it's important for us to acknowledge and celebrate this special time, and to honour the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The acronym NAIDOC stands for National Aboriginals and Islanders Day Observance Committee.

By actively participating in NAIDOC Week, we show our commitment to reconciliation, respect, and inclusivity. Check out this video by the CommBank Matildas, with players Lydia Williams and Kyah Simon speaking about how their Elders continue to play an important role in their communities and families.

Last year Football Australia wrote a great article profiling former Socceroo Travis Dodd, who is doing some amazing work in improving football's engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, and it also does a deep dive of the original football trailblazers in the 1950s and 1970s. It’s well worth checking out!

NAIDOC Week also allows us an opportunity to engage with local communities and build strong relationships. Check out Reconciliation Tasmania to learn more about this year’s NAIDOC theme, For Our Elders.

We are also committed to recognising the Traditional Owners of the land we live and play on, so we will be making a small but important change on our website to include a long overdue Acknowledgement of Country over the coming days.
