The following sport days are available for students with a disability. Check the calendar to find when they are offered in your area.
Multi sports days
Multi sports days provide an opportunity for students to be introduced to a variety of sports. The days are held throughout the state and during the day students are allocated to groups and experience playing different sports. Usually students participate in four or five sports for periods of up to 40 minutes. The days are well supported by state and national sporting associations, and it is hoped that following the day students will be encouraged to participate further in sport.
The NSW Public Schools Boccia Knockout has developed into a state wide knockout competition for students with disabilities and is contested by over 70 schools annually. Boccia is an exciting game and the knockout provides opportunities for students to represent their school and play against other schools. Teams consist of between three and nine players and schools winning their regionally based competitions are invited to Sydney Olympic Park to participate in the state final series. The Boccia competition is supported by Boccia NSW and the Cerebral Palsy Alliance of NSW.
Athletics come and try days
Athletics come and try days for students with physical and intellectual disabilities are held annually in Sydney. The days provide an opportunity for students to participate in a variety of track and field events. Students participate at an international standard synthetic track and enjoy coaching from qualified athletics coaches and officials. Students who show an interest or ability in athletics are encouraged to consider becoming involved in competitive athletics. The days are well supported by officials and coaches from Athletics NSW.
