about team connect

our vision

To provide relief to all teenage girls across WA at risk and in need.

our program

Team Connect’s outreach program is available exclusively to young females at risk and in need. It uses cricket to assist in the provision of benevolent relief. Cricket was chosen as the vehicle to provide relief.


Our award-winning program has been improving wellbeing through sport since 2018. Take a look below at the impact we’ve had.
