Boy walks down stairs to beach on major project


Students who one of the SEDA Group programs may have the opportunity to be involved in running a Major Project in the community that provide a number of positive outcomes for all involved. Through these experiences students have been able to enhance their communication skills, critical thinking and leadership.

You will have the opportunity to plan and implement a real event linked directly to the strategic plan of a peak sporting organisation. You will feel part of the team, learn from industry staff and see your hard work come to life.

You will have the opportunity to develop your understanding of both sourcing sponsorship and utilising different approaches to generate revenue to run your event. There is even the opportunity for you to run your event interstate or abroad!

Major Projects completed in 2019:

• Tasmania with North Melbourne FC
• Malaysia with Cricket Australia
• Alice Springs with Cricket Australia

Students who complete a Major Project are reliable for the planning and organisation of all aspects of their project and any associated travel.


In every project, students are on the ground, increasing the development of their chosen sport in the community. This may be through clinics, tournaments, volunteering in the community or assisting their sporting partner.


Some projects are completed in alignment with our elite sporting partners. We have had partner-aligned project groups travel to New Zealand, Malaysia, Tasmania, and Katherine, NT, just to name a few! Our partnerships help provide students the opportunity to have a once in a lifetime trip while gaining invaluable industry experience.
