We are proud to announce this new pilot program we are co-delivering with Disability Sport & Recreation, Variety – the Children’s Charity, City of Geelong, City of Ballarat and City of Melbourne.

These days give kids the opportunity to try sports they might otherwise miss out on. Aimed at kids aged 5-18 with learning difficulties, intellectual, sensory and physical disabilities, the days are an opportunity to have a go in a fun and inclusive environment.


Each day involves:

  • a range of sports to try

  • specialised coaching

  • adaptive equipment

  • showbags

  • water and fruit

  • local sporting club exhibitors

  • access to community services

  • opportunities to network with other families and teachers
