The GOALSS (Games for Overseas and Local Students and Staff) program uses sport to connect male international students with domestic male students and staff. Participants join to get some physical exercise while taking a break from study, making friends and expanding networks.
WHAT SPORT DO WE PLAY?
Soccer has been the preferred game amongst participants and in the interest of sharing a uniquely Australian sport we are also introducing some Australian Football League into the program for semester two.
Australian Football League (AFL) is also known as Aussie Rules because it is a football sport that is truly indigenous to Australia. In the spirit of sharing culture we are excited to introduce AFL to GOALSS participants by conducting a clinic where you will learn the basics of the game.
WHEN DO WE PLAY?
GOALSS meet on Thursday afternoons between 4pm and 6pm at No. 1 Oval (next to the Squash Pavilion. View campus map). This time includes a game and a barbecue meal afterwards.
