Linkages and partnerships are the lifeblood of any sporting organisation in Australia, at all levels of the organisation and sport, and administrators need advice on how to link, market and get grants to support their work. The 2012 Sports Without Borders Our Community National Sports Conference aimed to address this need and support sporting organisation by providing insights, case studies, opportunities and connections through great speakers and hands-on workshops.Read More

Australians love our sports; the thrill of competition, the warm glow of fellowship and the joys that come with being part of a team drive this passion. But not everybody gets a fair go in Australian sports today.Read More
Sports Without Borders would like to thank the Hawthorn Spartans for their recent generous donation.
The Spartans, a gang of football mad Greeks, draw their inspiration from the '300' movie, Greek history and their own Hellenic backgrounds. The Spartans have drawn the Greek community together weekly since they began last year and in a successful debut, made the Grand Final in VAFA Club 18 football. Not bad for a bunch of guys who had never really played football before.
Their second annual ball in May raised funds for the club, and also for the sporting community generally, through their contribution to Sports Without Borders. This will go directly into Sports Scholarships for young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds, to develop and achieve their dreams.
The Hawthorn Spartans have not lost a game this season yet, and we wish them all the best for 2012.
