Now referred to Indigenous Nationals, the event is a week-long multisport competition for indigenous student-athletes. The annual event aims to bring together student-athletes from universities across Australia to compete in a variety of sports and ultimately crown one university team the champion of the games. Indigenous Nationals is an amazing environment to not only celebrate the rich sporting culture of indigenous Australia but to also acknowledge the heritage and history of the participating student-athletes.
Indigenous Nationals is open to both staff and currently enrolled students of UniSport Australia (UniSport) member universities.
In maintaining the integrity of the Indigenous Nationals as an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander event and in keeping with the rules of engagement, confirmation of Aboriginality is required by each player participating in the competition.
The Indigenous Nationals take place in June/July every year and registration opens in February each year. For more information please contact Student Life.
