The Edwin Flack Games, held in Casey, and Connolly Games, held in Springfield, Ohio, were reciprocal sporting and cultural exchange programs with Casey’s sister city, Springfield, Ohio USA. The exchange first began in 2000 when a contingent from Springfield, Ohio visited the City of Casey to participate in the inaugural Edwin Flack Games. The 2000 Games also saw participants from Casey’s UK sister city, Berwick-upon-Tweed, and Greek sister city, Ioannina. Since then, a further three exchanges between the Casey and Springfield have given participants the opportunity to be closely involved with their sister city community. Competitors were young non-professional athletes aged 16 to 18 years however these exchanges involved all age groups in roles such as officials, coaches and support personnel. The first Edwin Flack Games involved competitors in over eight sports. In 2006, the second Edwin Flack Games attracted over 180 athletes from Casey and Springfield who competed in basketball, athletics, volleyball, soccer, baseball, softball and golf.
