    The OnSide Victoria Life Skills Through Sport Education for Newly Arrived Mothers and Daughters Program provides newly arrived migrants and asylum seekers who have settled in south-east Melbourne with the opportunity to experience Australia’s sporting way of life.

    This particular project aims to:

    • Introduce newly arrived mothers and their daughters to the history of sport in Australia.
    • Break down the barriers that exist for participation and engagement in community sport.
    • Provide an opportunity for these families to experience a major sporting event and the iconic MCG.
    • Provide education on exercise and healthy living as a way of life.

    Melbourne Football Club captain Brad Green with guests during the MCG visit on January 28, 2011.The group enjoyed a visit to the National Sports Museum, a picnic lunch on the lawns, a walk around the magnificent Melbourne sports precinct and then some time in the 'G to watch the Vic Spirit women’s team take on South Australia in a Twenty20 match.

    MCC committee member Jane Nathan and Women of MCC chairperson Clare Cannon gave their time to discuss the benefits of sport in the context of culture and healthy living.

    One of the highlights was ‘bumping’ into Brad Green, newly appointed Melbourne Football Club Captain during his photo shoot near the bronze sculpture of Ron Barassi.

    The visitors waited in anticipation for him to come down from his perch to sign autographs and kindly pose for photographs with the group.

    The tickets to the MCG were provided by Cricket Victoria's GloBALL program.
