Indigenous Games Student Support

What are the Indigenous Uni-Games?

The National Indigenous Tertiary Education Student Games (NITESG) is an annual sporting event for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander university students and staff. The games started in 1996 as a class project between 30 students enrolled at The University of Newcastle. Now in its 21st year, the games have grown so that hundreds of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander tertiary students from universities all around Australia compete against 35 individual teams.

The games provide a unique opportunity to bring together Indigenous students from around the country to participate and compete at a national level in mixed sports including basketball, netball, volleyball and touch football as well as an Indigenous cultural game.

Who will benefit from our fundraising?

Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students from across all disciplines at the university will benefit from this fundraising. They will be able to attend as a collective group and engage in networking and shared experiences. The University of Sydney can be proud of our representation at the games.

Through the participation of such cultural events we know that our students have greater opportunities to succeed at university and become future leaders in our society.

How will your gift help our team?

The gift we receive from you will assist us in sending a team of 14 players to represent Sydney University at the games. Your gift will go directly towards student support for the Indigenous Uni-Games including: individual player registration, coaching and hire fees in the lead up to the games, uniforms, flights, accommodation and transport during the games.

Why is it important to attend the games?

The games were built upon 5 basic objectives;

  • The celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture
  • To promote unity, health, fitness and well-being
  • To demonstrate and promote self-determination
  • To initiate and promote new communication networks
  • To reinforce identity through positive role models

Your gift means so much more

The social and cultural benefits your contribution will provide are reflective in the objectives of the game.  Please show your support and make a gift today.
