Football Queensland has partnered with Multicultural Australia to promote social inclusion by delivering the Connecting Through Sport program for migrants and refugees.
Connecting Through Sport gives individuals and families from multicultural backgrounds an avenue into community sporting clubs via a four-week training program.
FQ is currently working with six clubs in South East and South West Queensland to deliver the program in strategic areas with a high density of newly arrived migrants.
The clubs are USQ FC and Rockville Rovers in Toowoomba, and Bethania Rams, Logan Metro, North Star and Ipswich Knights across Brisbane, Ipswich and Logan.

The Multicultural Settlement Program (MSP) aims to foster relationships between clubs, schools and local communities to engage and provide playing opportunities for newly-arrived children.
It is a FREE, 6 week MiniRoos program for boys and girls aged 5 to 11 who have arrived in Australia within the past 5 years. Sessions are run weekly with qualified coaches teaching participants key football skills through fun exercises and games in an inclusive environment. All participants receive a free participant pack including a ball, shin pads, boot bag and water bottle upon completion of the program.
