Gridiron NSW State Challenge Breaks Ground
April brought another sporting spectacle as Bring It On Sports hosted the 2023 Gridiron NSW State Challenge at Collegians Sports & Performance Centre in Wollongong.

This strategic partnership also positions the organisation as a key player in nurturing talent within the sports coaching industry.
Expanding Horizons: Bring It On Sports Becomes a Registered NDIS Provider

Touchdown Fun at Flag Gridiron School Holiday Camp
In September, Bring It On Sports hit the field with the Flag Gridiron School Holiday Camp at Tonbridge Oval, offering an unforgettable experience for school kids. Transforming the game of American Football into a non-contact adventure, young athletes engaged in a modified version where the objective was to skillfully remove flags from opponents rather than traditional tackles. The camp not only introduced these budding players to the exciting world of gridiron but also emphasised skill development, teamwork, and, most importantly, a whole lot of fun.
