The TRAX Sports Education Tours, funded through the Department of Social Services (Community Development and Participation Programme), 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.  Attached below is the Program Booklet for the week.
