Everyone has their own Play AU story...what's yours?

Here's a few of the athletes we recently helped to play, coach and experience Australia.
Daryl Keaney
"I arrived in Australia from Ireland and signed up to the Play AU program. Within 48 hours my coach profile had been built and I was being promoted to clubs and schools. A few days later I got a great paid opportunity to coach a team at a top grammar school in Melbourne. The Play AU team not only negotiated me a great rate of $37 an hour but have also been really helpful getting me set up with tax and Medicare. It's a really fantastic program especially if you're new to the country"

George Neave
I moved to Melbourne from the UK for a 12 month work/travel visa and joined the Play AU program in January. Within a week I'd been connected with St Kilda cricket club and I'm now playing for them for the rest of the season. It's really worked out perfectly as I'm also living in St Kilda! I never thought about playing while I was here. I came originally just for travel so being able to also play cricket while I'm here is brilliant"
