The CALDplay sports program provides newly arrived people to the West of Melbourne with social participation opportunities through the medium of sport and physical activity, whilst promoting healthy living.

Structured sports programs assist participants to make social connections and enhance their economic and personal wellbeing by providing opportunities to speak English in a social setting and developing employability skills through sport, particularly teamwork and communication.

Working alongside English Language Schools in the West, the CALDplay program runs for 6 weeks during each school term, with participants having the opportunity to learn four different team sports. This sustainable model is set-up in conjunction with partners including Netball Victoria, AFL Victoria and Western United FC.

The program builds trust, awareness, appreciation, understanding and skills for each sport as well as enable participants to develop life and social skills.
