The RAC sponsors the Gove Netball Association to run the local netball competition. We are also a major sponsor for East Arnhem School Sport, coordinating activities and sponsoring participation in soccer, football and athletics at the NT Championships in Darwin.
Rirratjingu Football Program and Partnership with Darwin Buffalos
The RAC run the Rirratjingu Football program, which provides employment, training and healthy lifestyle advice to Indigenous men, using football as a medium. Taking a holistic approach, the program looks to do more than just develop competition skills, but build skills for the future. In its inaugural year, the program saw 13 Yolngu men play in the NT Football League, and 19 into employment.
Local Djarrak GAFL footy team received a tremendous boost after the RAC partnered with the Darwin Buffaloes to provide opportunities for Yolngu footballers in the NTFL.
