NNSWF Partners with Sport NSW to deliver Activate Inclusion Sports Day

March 21st, 2018

Today, Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) partnered with Sport NSW and several other sports to implement an Activate Inclusion Sports Day at the University of Newcastle.

The Activate Inclusion Sports Day was an open invitation to students between 5-18 years with sensory, physical and intellectual disabilities to experience mainstream sports in a positive and adaptive environment.

NNSWF’s ALDI Miniroos Development Officers, Brent Wallace and Steph Palmer participated in the event. NNSWF’s program of activities included fun, small sided games for the students.

Other sporting activities on the day included cricket, judo, goalball, boccia, little athletics and NRL/touch football.

“It’s great to see all kids provided with the opportunity to try the different sports, especially football,” Wallace said.

“Sport NSW has done an outstanding job organising and facilitating this program at the University of Newcastle.”

“The event provides Northern NSW Football with a chance to promote the great work that local clubs are doing in this space, through the running of the Football4All program.”

Football4All is a special needs football program conducted by NNSWF and Football NSW to create a support network for volunteers, coaches, parents and players who are involved in special needs football.

There are three Football4All club programs being run in Northern NSW venues this year including Edgeworth, Lake Macquarie and Maitland.

Football4All focuses on participation through physical activity, player interaction, activities and social enjoyment of the game.
