Great Southern

The Great Southern is a region which offers one of the State's most diverse range of sport and recreation pursuits.

It's a vibrant region for sport and recreation and extends from the coast to stunning inland areas. Activities include hockey, football, cricket and netball to recreational pursuits such as mountain biking, wind surfing and fishing.

The Great Southern has a wealth of state and national team members across a variety of sports, helped by the establishment of the regional talent development body, the Great Southern Sports Talent Association in 2014, with workshops and seminars provided by the Great Southern Coaches Club.
