Is Invictus Australia all about sport & competition?

Sport doesn’t have to be competitive to reap rewards. At Invictus Australia, we believe the healing power of sport and recreation can be experienced through many channels. We have seen positive and lasting benefits on veteran rehabilitation, recovery, reintegration & wellbeing, by participating in coaching, mentoring, officiating and volunteering. Opportunities exist around the country in a myriad of sports from the NRL’s Battlefield to Footy Fields refereeing program, mentoring at sailing clubs, volunteering at your local parkrun or training as a surf or rowing coach. Also, many of these ‘sports’ don’t focus on competition, rather it’s about participation, connection and a sense of camaraderie with like-minded people that understand the Defence experience.
