The power of being present in every season.

Thriving people create thriving, healthy communities.

Our trained chaplains know how to listen and respond in every circumstance.

Thriving clubs create safe spaces for people to grow, learn, and build relationships.

We are invested in supporting clubs to create positive, healthy, value-based culture.

Thriving communities create places where each person feels supported, valued, and encouraged in all that they do – on and off the field.
Support when you need it most.

There will be times when your community is rocked. Having a chaplain means you have the support and tools to deal with all that life throws at you.

Sports Chaplaincy Australia acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we live, play, and serve. We pay deep respect to Elders past, present and future. We also acknowledge the unique and significant role God has bestowed upon our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first peoples in Australia. Together, we celebrate the culture, creativity, spirituality, stewardship and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people over time – and today.
