Twilight Sports is a free 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 limited transport​​. 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.

​Volunteering - Get involved

The program couldn't run without generosity and support of our wonderful community and we are always looking for new volunteers who want to give back to their local community.

Volunteering positions available - experience welcome, but not required: 

  • Team manager/assistant (experience not needed);
  • General assistant (eg, checking in players and volunteers on arrival and 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 volunteers who attend week after week, wash shirts & tablecloths and drive buses, Twilight Sports couldn't run successfully without your encouragement, input & support.
