About Sports Chaplaincy Australia
Sports Chaplaincy Australia is the national sports network for chaplains serving clubs and communities around Australia in sporting codes like football, cricket, netball, AFL, V8 Supercars, NRL and many other sports. We work alongside leagues, sports institutes and governing bodies like the AIS, CAMS and the ASP.
Established in 1984 in Sydney, we've grown to now have staff in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth, as well as key regional centres. SCA is a not-for-profit charity empowering chaplains to work in and through local sports clubs and communities.
Each chaplain works in connection with their local church, and is given best-practice training, compliance, suitability and support. Every one of them begins their journey at a new club with one goal in mind: complete investment in the athletes at their club.
