The Centre, Dural’s hub of sports, Church and community, has welcomed a new Sports Manager, Elijah. With Covid-19 restrictions in place, it has been very quiet at the Centre, but Elijah and the team have been hard at work planning for the eventual return of sports.

Elijah has injected his enthusiasm and passion for sports into developing two new programs at the Centre. The first, “Action Kidz”, is a toddler and preschool multi-sport and movement program that encourages kids to get active while having fun and making new friends! The second, “Future Starz”, builds on that foundation, introducing kids into more specialised Netball and Futsal clinics as they get older, aimed at primary aged children.

The team at The Centre are excited and focused on providing a safe, friendly, professional and fun environment for everyone to get physically active and enjoy sports. But they are just as interested in caring for the needs of the people who walk through their doors… emotionally, relationally and spiritually.

The Centre started as Dural Baptist Church, then grew into both a church and sports centre, and now encompasses a range of activities and groups across all demographics, from worship services and sports, to the Men’s Shed, playgroups, youth group, family camping trips, events and more. The team is eager to welcome people back through the doors and see their regular and new patrons soon!sports.
