National Indigenous Games | Newcastle | 20th – 24th June

The National Indigenous Tertiary Education Student Games (NITESG) began in 1996 as a joint class project between thirteen students enrolled in a Diploma of aboriginal Studies (Community Recreation) at the then Wollotuka School for Aboriginal Studies, the University of Newcastle.

The competition now exists as a week-long multisport competition for indigenous student-athletes which is contested over four sports – Touch, Football, Netball and Volleyball.

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.
