    National Indigenous Tertiary Education Student Games

    This year, the UWA Western Waagyls will travel to the Deakin University in Geelong, Victoria for the 22nd NITESG in an attempt to become the most successful team ever and win an 8th Championship.

    The Games, now held during the mid-year break, will this year be held 25 - 29 June and it provides a unique opportunity to bring together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander university students from around the country to participate and compete at a national level in mixed sports including basketball, netball, volleyball and touch football as well as an Indigenous cultural game. Since its inception in 1995, the aim of the gathering has been to promote unity, interaction and friendly competition between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander tertiary students.

    The Games offer an opportunity to promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture in a positive light, and each year the Games receive increasing exposure in both mainstream and Indigenous media. The Western Waagyls, until recently, were the only Western Australian representatives at the Games and have competed at NITESG since 2000 and performed admirably. So far the Western Waagyls have won seven championships (more than any other university) and have been placed runner-up four times. If you are an Indigenous student from UWA and would like to attend the Games as a competitor please contact Brendon DeGois or speak to a WASAC committee member to express your interest.
