Softball Australia unveils jersey with Indigenous design
10/11/2020
Ipswich Indigenous artist Kylie Hill and her son Jack created the unique design.

Softball Australia unveiled the Australia National Softball Team’s first ever Indigenous supporter jersey top, celebrating individual athlete’s journeys from all parts of Australia to the pinnacle of women’s softball in the country.

The supporter tops are an idea brought to life by Aussie Spirit captain and proud Kamilaroi woman, Stacey Porter, along with her West Australian teammate Leah Parry.

Porter reached out to Ipswich Indigenous artist Kylie Hill, and her son Jack, to create a unique design. They titled their design “Our Aussie Spirit Journey”, the story behind the artwork being:

“We came from all over this beautiful country we call home, Australia. We have shared our journeys with families and friends and now we want to share it with you. All the hard work, dedication, sweat and tears have made us what we are today. We will be playing hard for our country and won't let anything bring us down. We are the Travelodge Aussie Spirit Softball Team.”

The Aussie Spirit Indigenous supporter top is available to pre-order through Monday, 23 November. To place an order, visit here.
