​​​​​​​Twilight Sports is a free, seven-week, non-competitive indoor sports program aimed at encouraging social inclusion and participation for 12-18 year olds in a fun way. 

The program is designed to engage young people through sport in a safe, supervised environment, while benefiting the Canterbury Bankstown community through: 

  • Providing positive role models for young people;
  • Providing young people with access to local youth and support services;
  • Providing young people with opportunities to participate in a variety of physical team sports;
  • Providing safe activities for young people out of school hours;
  • Providing volunteering opportunities and training; and 
  • Building self-esteem and resilience in young people.

The program is entirely free and includes dinner, uniforms and transport home each week. It is also a safe outlet where young people are encouraged to participate in life skills workshops in order to become more physically, socially and mentally healthy.

Players and volunteers are encouraged to: 

  • Enjoy the spirit of the game and not focus on winning;
  • Use the games to build both players skills and interpersonal relationships; and 
  • Give all players an opportunity, regardless of skills and experience.

​Get involved

The program couldn't run without generosity and support of our wonderful community.

Volunteering positions: 

  • Team coach/manager;
  • Team assistant (helping the coach, experience not needed);
  • Catering assistant (food prep & serving);
  • General administration (signing in players and volunteers on arrival/uniform allocation);
  • Bus driver;
  • Bus assistant (navigator); and 
  • Bus logistics (scheduling the bus run for players catching the bus home).

A big thank you from the participants to all 2017 volunteers who attended week after week, washed shirts & tablecloths and drove buses, Twilight Sports couldn't run successfully without your encouragement, input & support.
