Is Invictus Australia different from the Invictus Games?
Invictus Australia is more than an event. We support the health and wellbeing of all veterans and their families through sport and recreation, year-round, across the country. Whilst the Invictus Games can shine a spotlight on the sacrifices servicemen and women made serving their country, and their drive to overcome illness and injury, Invictus Australia helps ensure that all veterans can remain active and connected through sport within their local communities without the bright lights of the Games.
However the Invictus Games is an important part of what we do. We support & send 30 plus competitors to each Invictus Games as well as co-host training camps throughout the year. Invictus Australia works with the Australian Defence Force to deliver the national ADF Adaptive Sport Program for veterans who are wounded, injured or ill – including supporting the Australian Invictus Games and Warrior Games Teams. Invictus Australia is responsible for all former –serving competitors, while the Defence Force manages current serving personnel.
