The TRAX sports Education Tours are often the only chance for students from small and remote schools to trial and experience new sports, and access coaching. The Tours, held over a week, offer primary school aged participants with quality coaching, inclusiveness and the ability to improve overall health and well-being through physical activity. It also provides sports administration workshops and in-service training for teachers, coaches, officials and club administrators to ensure ongoing participation is well supported in communities. The tours are strongly supported by the state and national sporting organisations whose development officers host many of the specialist clinics.
The South West Indigenous Network (SWIN) currently has funding through the Department of Social Services (Community Development and Participation Programme) to conduct a total of 12 tour programs (4 tour programs each year across a 3 year period) with visits to 61 communities across the South West Region. These tours also aim to provide community members and volunteers with regular access to development officers and high quality sporting experiences to continue getting children and community members in rural and remote areas to participate in physical activity.
