CHAIRMAN’S REPORT

This year saw the National Aboriginal Sports Foundation Corporation enter its tenth year and, notwith­ standing various constraints affecting the Foundation, the N.A.S.F. continued to provide valuable assistance towards the sporting and cultural development of the Aboriginal and Islander people.

The success of much of the support provided by the Foundation can be measured in the recorded success of many Aboriginal and Island sporting teams, clubs and individuals throughout Australia.

Their increased participation in sporting events arranged within their respective Aboriginal community as well as an involvement in sporting activities in the broader Australian community testifies to the success of our programs to develop Aboriginal and Island people in sport.

The Foundation also believes that its assistance has helped in fostering administrative experience and expertise in co-ordinating various Aboriginal Sporting events — an important step towards Aboriginal self-management.

Part of this aspect of the Foundation’s activities has centred on the development and implementation of Regional Aboriginal Sporting Co-ordinating Committees in several States.

These committees have organised their own Regional Carnivals, co-ordinating the various events and participants, as well as arranging sponsorship for the costs of the carnivals and trophies.

During the year the Foundation underwent a review by the Department of Aboriginal Affairs involving a reduction in the num ber of Foundation members from twelve to six and also the withdrawal of funds for its national sporting activities.

Consequently the Foundation has found it necessary to re-examine its grants policy and to clearly define procedural guidelines for its future operations.

Foundation members have expressed concern over the reduction in effective representation of the Aboriginal people within their respective States.

A central co-ordinating body representing Aboriginal and Islander sporting interests is seen by the Foundation as an im portant vehicle in Aboriginal sports administration.

How ever it is envisaged that a proposed examination of the National Aboriginal Sports Foundation by the Executive of the National Aboriginal Conference will in the new year result in developing the best means of providing sports assistance to Aborigines.

The proposed examination follows a referral by the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Senator P.E. Baume, asking the N.A.C. to advise on the future role of sport in Aboriginal society and the nature of sports-assisted programs.

The Minister has asked the N.A.C. to focus on goals and priorities in Aboriginal sport as well as the desirable appropriate structure and role of any national Aboriginal sports body.

The N.A.S.F. welcomes the proposal particularly in the light that it allows Aboriginal people to comment on the future of Aboriginal sports programs, and the Foundation is pleased to offer any support to the N.A.C. Executive in its investigation.

Another significant trend which emerged from the Foundation's operations through the year was an increase in the num ber of grants m ade to the less popular sports. Hitherto, emphasis had been centred on traditional sports such as football, cricket and basketball, but the change in focus to sports such as judo, darts and athletics, particularly in the junior ranks, brings a new diversity to the Foundation's work in Aboriginal sport

administration.

1

Obviously an important aspect of our activities included our financial affairs. In its budgetary allocation for the 1980-81 financial year the Foundation received $250 000 compared to $235 000 for the previous year (1979-80). The Foundation sincerely hopes that the review being conducted by the N.A.C. will ultimately provide an administrative vehicle to provide adequate and appropriate financial support to Aboriginal and Islander sporting interests.

The Foundation wishes to m ake special mention of disabled athlete, Mr Kevin Coombs, during 1981, the Year of Disabled. Kevin’s outstanding achievements in basketball at club, State and international levels have been a great credit to Aboriginal sport. The Foundation has been pleased to assist Kevin in the past and we hope that he continues his successful sporting career.

Tribute m ust be paid to N.A.S.F. m em bers and local Aboriginal representatives whose efforts have made Regional Aboriginal Sporting Committees such a success.

Appreciation is also extended to the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and the staff of his Department for their interest and contributions to the National Aboriginal Sports Foundation during the year.

Similar appreciation must be mentioned towards the members of the Foundation as the Foundation Secretariat staff for their support throughout the year.

The National Aboriginal Sports Foundation gratefully acknowledges the financial assistance and advice of the following companies and persons:

Shell C om pany of Australia Ltd Visy Board Com pany Pty Ltd The Age (Melbourne) CRA Limited Tubem akers of Australia Ltd

G. J. Coles & Co. Ltd Roche Bros Pty Ltd ANZ Banking Group Ltd Amatil Ltd

EXECUTIVE OFFICER’S REPORT

The year 1980-81 has seen the Foundation move towards becoming a more effective autonomous body. During our first eighteen m onths of independent operation, many administrative difficulties prevented the undertaking of much needed initiatives in Aboriginal sport

With only one full-time staff assistant (a typist), the task of trying to co-ordinate public relations field work with the day-to-day functioning of the Secretariat’s office in Canberra was most unrealistic.

In Septem ber 1980 the Foundation appointed an Administration Officer, Mr John Bell. His appointment provided administrative support which had been badly lacking since separation from the Dept of Aboriginal Affairs in May 1979.

The year saw a growing interest in sporting activity in Aboriginal communities throughout Australia. This is evidenced by the increased num ber of grants allocated both to senior and junior sport.

A growing trend towards junior sport in Aboriginal communities indicates that the Foundation must develop comprehensive policy in this area in the immediate future.

A National Junior Aboriginal Sports Award Scheme is to be introduced in 1982 to provide bursaries for outstanding young competitors in various sports. This will become an annual event as part of the Foundation’s policy to encourage junior sport.

The Foundation this year has taken the first positive steps towards seeking financial assistance from private enterprise. A large num ber of national companies have been approached with a limited response to date. A list of acknowledgments is included elsewhere in this report. The Foundation has also begun to explore the possibility of company sponsorship for national sporting carnivals and it is hoped that positive results can be

obtained.

National sporting carnivals have received great support in past years from Aboriginal communities. The Australian Rules-Netball Carnival held in Darwin in October 1980, while not financially successful, was nevertheless a successful social event. Communities in all States have indicated their continued support for

these events, including Rugby League-Basketball Carnivals.

The Secretariat has also begun to look at other major policy issues in Aboriginal sport. The role of community sporting activity and the role of Aboriginal women in sport, the role of sport in alcohol rehabilitation and the developm ent of junior sport are all issues which the Foundation will be exploring extensively over the next twelve months.

The Secretariat has begun to approach other national sporting bodies to provide an exchange of ideas with a view to a wider developm ent of policy. My appointment as a member of the Australian organising committee of the General Assembly of Sports International has established a meaningful link between the Foundation and the sporting administrative powers of Australia and overseas countries.

At the time of this report the Foundation had been accepted as an associate member of the Confederation of Australian Sport and it is anticipated that we will soon be admitted as a full member with voting powers. This will enable us to present the Aboriginal viewpoint to the Confederation, which is the major policy-making body for Australian sports. This is an exciting prospect and provides Aboriginal people with the opportunity to

gain equality in the general sporting sphere.

The Secretariat throughout the year has fostered and encouraged the activities of Aboriginal sports co­ ordinating committees. In a num ber of areas they have proved most helpful in providing the Foundation with valuable assistance. The most active committees to date are the North Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Sports Association, the South East Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Sports Foundation Co-ordinating

Committee. Others showing activity are the Victorian Aboriginal Sports Foundation and the Central Australian Sports Foundation.

1 wish to thank my staff for their continuous assistance and also the member of the Aboriginal sporting groups and committees throughout Australia without whom the work of the Secretariat could not be successful.

ABORIGINAL SPORT IN THE REGIONS

H

Q u e en sla n d Aboriginal sport in Queensland has been assisted by the formation of sports co-ordinating committees in Brisbane and Caims.

The S outh East Queensland Aboriginal and Islanders Sports Foundation Co-ordinating Committee and the North Q ueensland Aboriginal and Islander Sports Association assist the Foundation by submitting grant application with priority recommendations. The Member for North Queensland, Mr Merv Ah Kee, and the M em ber for Southern Queensland, Mr Charles Watson, advise the committees on Foundation policy and assist with applications.

Several promising junior sporting stars have emerged in Queensland and have received assistance from the Foundation. Kim Charles, Trevor Johnson (athletics), Tamara Murphy (tennis), Amanda Ryan and Tracy B ugden (softball), Debbie Levis, Arlene Joyce, Lea Stevens (netball), Michael Williams (cricket) and Dion Johansen (baseball) all show outstanding potential which augurs well for the future of sport in this State.

N ew S o u th W ales Australia is experiencing a boom in athletics with the increasing popularity of fun runs and distance running. A young Aboriginal athlete from Tumut is showing remarkable ability both on the track and in fun runs. Fiona Williams has won the Tumut Times Fun Run for her age group and has represented at Zone and Regional level in the N.S. W. cross-country titles for four successive years.

A nother athlete to star is Alfred Trindell from Nowra. Alfred was chosen by the N.S.W. Secondary Schools Athletic Association to tour the U.S.A. for specialist coaching during 1981. Alfred is a first-class all-round com petitor excelling in the triple jump, 100 metres and 200 metres sprint events, high jump, hurdles and relay a n d is highly regarded by the Athletic Association of N.S.W.

The Foundation has assisted both Fiona and Alfred and hopes that they can go on to even greater achievem ents in the future.

Two young tennis juniors may well be following in the footsteps of the famous Evonne Goolagong. Deidre M adden and her brother, Lee, from Sydney are progressing steadily through the ranks. Lee has won a num ber of important tournam ents against tough competition and has performed well against nationally ranked juniors. Both are receiving specialist coaching and show great promise.

Assistance has been given to clubs in socially deprived city areas such as Redfem and in remote country areas such as Brewarrina to alleviate the recreational and sporting problems experienced in those areas.

A grant for gymnasium equipm ent in Redfem and for boxing equipment in Brewarrina hopefully will assist Aboriginal sporting groups in those areas to combat problems associated with unemployment and isolation.

During the year the Foundation also financially supported the Les Coe Memorial Rugby League Knockout Com petition which is to be held annually. Aboriginal teams from all parts of N.S.W. compete in this increasingly popular competition. For those who believe Rugby League is the greatest game of ail, a trip to Cowra for this occasion is well worth the effort.

V ictoria During 1980-81 a num ber of sports received assistance from the Foundation in Victoria.

Australian Rules, netball, tennis, squash, hockey, soccer, basketball and cricket all received financial support.

Junior sport wasem phasised with grants going to Winaminna Hostel, and Gunai Youth and Sport Association.

T he Foundation is conscious of community recreational and sporting activity and a grant was given to the Victorian Aboriginal Health Service to equip a gymnasium.

-

The Foundation is encouraging the Victorian Aboriginal Sports Foundation Co-ordinating Committee in its efforts to prom ote sport in all Aboriginal communities.

T asm ania Tasmania was represented at the national Australian Rules football carnival in Darwin in October and the Foundation financially assisted the team.

Sport activity in Aboriginal communities in Tasmania is increasing in popularity and it is hoped to provide substantial assistance in future years.

Sou th A ustralia The Foundation is especially aware of the problems facing Aboriginal sporting groups in remote areas.

Assistance has been given to the Pitjantjatjana Sports Council in North West Reserves area including the communities Amata, Indulkana, Emabella, Tregon and Pipalyatjara.

Our assistance enabled the people of this area to form a combined Australian Rules football team which participated in the 1980 Carnival in Darwin.

We have also assisted the people of Oodnadatta to purchase much needed sporting equipment.

A promising junior netball player, April Lawrie, is showing great talent and a bright future is predicted for her.

W estern A ustralia A num ber of Aboriginal communities in Western Australia have benefited from Foundation assistance during 1980-81.

Australian rules football is a major sport in many Aboriginal communities and the Foundation has assisted with the establishment of Aboriginal teams by means of grants.

Communities in Carnarvon, Albany, Kalgoorlie, Merredin and Perth received grants to assist netball, softball, Australian Rules, basketball, boxing and cricket.

At the time of this report, steps are being taken to give assistance to the Pilbara and other northern areas.

TEAM SPIRIT: Aboriginal sporting programs develop team cohesion and also involves travel as this South Australian basket ball team knows when it travelled to Far North Queensland for a carnival.

5

Sporting Carnivals which were arranged during the year by local Aboriginal Co-ordinating Councils did m uch to foster Aboriginal participation, self management and self determination.

N orthern Territory During 1980-81 the Territory produced two outstanding sporting achievements. Mrs Ivy Hampton from Alice Springs becam e the national darts champion and represented Australia against international competition.

A young baseball champion of the future, Cyril Dixon, from Tennant Creek represented Australia in the national under 18 team which toured the United States of America. American talent scouts rated Cyril a top prospect for the future.

The Foundation assisted both Ivy and Cyril with financial grants to participate in the international com­ petitions.

The sporting needs of tribal communities in the Territory received a special priority during the year. Substantial grants were allocated to Yirara College in Alice Springs and to Kalano Community in Katherine to cater for all sporting requirements, especially for juniors from remote areas.

Each year at Yuendumu, 180 miles north west of Alice Springs, the largest gathering of tribal groups in Australia m eets for the Yuendumu Sports Weekend. Basketball, football and track and field teams from places as far north as Bamyili and as far south as Warburton (W.A.) take part in a weekend of friendly sporting competition. In past years the Foundation has financially supported this occasion as it is a magnificent example of community co-operation. It is hoped that the Yuendumu Sports Weekend will continue to be a success in

future years.

N a tio n a l A ustralian R ules and N etball Carnival Darwin— O ctober 1980 There was great interest shown in the carnival which was held in perfect weather. State Football teams from W estern Australia, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Northern Territory provided spectacular matches and entertainment.

For the first time a tribal representative team from Central Australia competed, and they played valiantly throughout the carnival. The Northern Territory won a thrilling grand final against South Australia, while Victoria defeated Western Australia for third position.

In netball, the brilliant Victorian team outplayed Northern Territory. The Victorians have now been un­ defeated at national carnivals for seven years — a very fine record. Best and fairest awards went to Paul Ah C hee and Lois Agius (South Australia).

KEVIN CO O M BS — CHAMPION PARAPLEGIC SPORTSMAN

Kevin C oom bs is a remarkable sportsman. In the early 1960s Kevin was a regular visitor to the spinal unit of the Austin Hospital in Heidelberg, Melbourne and spent a great deal of time with new patients. Himself a paraplegic, Kevin dem onstrated sporting skills to the patients and encouraged them to participate in competitive sport.

in thise days the medical profession did not regard sport as being as important as they do now in the rehabilitation of a paraplegic but time has proven that sport plays a most important role. Although Kevin was in his very early twenties he had some incredible insight into the future that sport was to be of great value to the

disabled, and he was one of the strongest advocates in this respect.

Kevin is a founding m em ber of the Paravics Sports Club and has held many positions on the committee of the club since its inception; he was at one time president of the club. Over the years Kevin has proven to be the m ost respected m em ber of the sports club and his opinions have often been sought and always those opinions have b een sound.

Kevin has an international record that is most impressive, he has represented Australia seven times since 1960 at the following Gam es for the Disabled: Italy 1960 Olympic Gam es for the Disabled

Israel 1968 Olympic Games for the Disabled

Germ any 1972 Olympic Games for the Disabled

Holland 1980 Olympic Games for the Disabled

New Zealand 1974 Commonwealth Games for the Disabled Australia 1977 Far Eastern and South Pacific International Games England 1977 Stoke Mandeville Games Silver Jubilee Year

In G erm any Kevin was the captain-coach of the Australian Team and the Australian Team Captain in the Stoke Mandeville Games in 1977. He has been selected to represent Australia in the next international games, the Far Eastern and South Pacific Games, which are to be conducted in Hong Kong in October 1982.

He has received considerable support over the years from the National Aboriginal Sports Foundation and we are proud to have given Kevin the opportunity to represent Australia.

Auditor’s Report

To the M em bers,

In respect of the Darwin Carnival I have not carried out an audit of the records of the Darwin Regional Aboriginal Sports Committee which acted as a Subcommittee of the National Aboriginal Sports Foundation.

Based on that Review and the audit conducted by me, it is my opinion that:

(a) The accompanying accounts, being the Income and Expenditure Statement, and Balance Sheet are properly drawn up in accordance with the Aboriginal Councils and A ssociations A c t 1976 as amended, and so as to give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Foundation as at 30 June 1981 and of the deficiency of the Foundation for the period ended 30 June 1981.

(b) The accounting records and other records and registers of the Foundation have been properly kept in accordance with the provision of the Aboriginal Councils and A ssociations A ct 1976 as amended.

A udit c er tific a te re a s s e t register I

I have exam ined the Asset Register of the Foundation and found it to be properly drawn up and all assets listed in the register have been verified.

Certified as correct as at 30 June 1981.
