Game Plan

Game Plan - getting young people in the game

Game Plan is a suite of resources to support sports clubs to increase their cultural diversity and to attract and retain young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds in sport and sports clubs – as members, players, coaches, trainers and leaders. 

Increasing cultural diversity in an organisation such as a sports club or body, is possible when the organisation is more culturally inclusive.

Game Plan provides an introduction to how to do this for sports clubs, sporting bodies, State Sporting Associations and other organisations working with sports clubs and associations.


Game Plan Warm Up is a quick and interactive online resource that will introduce you to the benefits of becoming a culturally inclusive club, the challenges faced by young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds in accessing sport, and what you can do to begin developing Your Game Plan.


Download and complete the Game Plan tool to develop a tailored action plan for your club. Your Game Plan will help you work towards becoming a more culturally inclusive club, and attracting and keeping a club membership that more widely reflects Australia’s multicultural community.


The Resource Kit contains comprehensive information to help you understand the context facing young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds and more ideas, strategies and templates to assist you in developing Your Game Plan.
