In the Spotlight

Looking Back: An Afternoon with the AAA Ambassadors

AAA Play are privileged to work with some fascinating people and our team of Ambassadors are no exception.

Our ambassadors help us to shout our message from the roof tops, and they inspire by being visible. You can’t be what you can’t see, and thanks to our ambassadors, everyone knows they can be an athlete.

It's been some time since our AAA Ambassadors got together and we love the opportunity to hang out with this crew – so what better excuse to hold an afternoon tea?

Looking Forward: The next Community of Practice is announced

The Sport Inclusion Community of Practice (CoP) returns Wednesday August 7th!

This will be the first CoP following confirmation of Together More Active funding for projects related to inclusion and diversity. Presentations from the sector will be short and sharp, sharing the population group, geographic area people are working in, and the population group in focus.

The CoP will be followed by the Balloon Football Allstars game at MSAC where networking can occur in between raucous cheering!
