Garnduwa is excited to announce that Majarlin Kimberley Centre for Remote Health (formerly Kimberley Rural Health Alliance) has joined the Kimberley Spirit Football Academy as a sponsor for 2019.

The Kimberley Spirit Football Academy provides talented footballers from across the Kimberley the opportunity to reach their potential on and off the field through high performance football camps and carnivals, along with life-skills development. Our goal is twofold; to develop local leaders who can grow the game at community level, and to build a structured pathway for identified, aspiring footballers to transition successfully to state and national level football.

The Majarlin Kimberley Centre for Remote Health is Commonwealth funded to create future remote health workforce. They facilitate clinical placements in the Kimberley for allied health and nursing students from all over Australia.

Majarlin is specifically sponsoring Kimberley Spirit’s Broome Regional Hub in addition with committing to send health students to 2019 events such as the Kimberley Spirit U/16’s Development Carnival. This enables the students to gain hands on experience in rural parts of the Kimberley while also enhancing the injury prevention/management aspect of Kimberley Spirit programs and events.

Lindy Swain, the Director of Majarlin Kimberley Centre for Remote Health, had the following to say about the sponsorship.

“Majarlin is a Yawuru word for “coming back”. We support health students to have amazing learning experiences here in the Kimberley in the hope that one day they will come back and work here. We hope some of our health students might inspire Kimberley Spirit students to also take up health careers and work here in the Kimberley. 

We admire the great work of Garnduwa and look forward to being involved with the Kimberley Spirit Football Academy.”

Kimberley Spirit’s Broome Regional Hub will begin its pre-season program in February, 2019.
