Inclusion, Respect, Passion and Community
VEWSA aims to ensure that all Victorians with disabilities who use electric wheelchairs have the opportunity to participate in sport. These opportunities include team sporting events at Regional, National and International levels of competition. We encourage participation and promote electric wheelchair sports with the hope of making a positive impact on the lives of Victorians with a disability. Sport has many benefits, it helps build character through teamwork, communication, leadership, hard work, perseverance and good sportsmanship.
We will achieve our mission by:
- Engaging with our members to provide support, guidance and resources.
- Create and maintain pathways to National and International competitions and engage with other Associations around Australia.
- Effectively administering all competitions throughout Victoria.
