TalentEd is a first class talent education program for young people aspiring to have a career in the sports industry.
Founded as our first community initiative in 2011, it is based on the belief that every individual has the strength, passion and talent to reach for the stars and make their mark on the Territory. Following three TalentEd camp programs, it is now one of the Territory’s successful models for creating career pathways for local rising stars.

How it all began
In 2011, Starwin Management (Karina Gray) in partnership with Intensity Sports Magazine (Jarred Ilett) and Hoops 4 Health (Timmy Duggan) hosted a 3 day induction camp (19-21 January) at Lake Bennett for the inaugural 2011 TalentEd program, providing an opportunity of a lifetime, for 16 young Territorians (from across the top end).
The unique and challenging program was developed with the belief that every individual has the strength, passion and talent to reach for the stars and make their mark on the Territory! Supported by the NT Government, Department of Sport and Recreation, the program covered topics including: media presentation; goal setting; nutrition; coaching; leadership and more.
Keynote speakers included 2010 ABC Sports Broadcaster of the Year- Roanna Edwards; NTIS AFL Head Coach – Brenton Toy; B2M Band Member – Thomas Simon; YouthWorx Programme Coordinator – Carina Frew; and Synastrys Projects / NT Adventure Racing’s – Jack Pennington.
“Starwin, thank you for your support in running the TalentEd program. You would be happy to know, I am now starting my senior football career playing for Ainslie in the NEAFL”.
