Our youth and development program runs alongside our two competitions the Premier League (May – and October) and Powerchair Sports League (November – April). The program is aimed at new or inexperienced powerchair users and provides a great opportunity for them to get involved and be a part of the action. It is the best chance to see the sports live and to check out the specialised equipment required to play our sports.
The program will enhance pathways for new players to learn the rules of the sports and develop the necessary skills before ultimately making their way into either or both competitions. Not only will players benefit from learning about and competing in sport, but it is a truly enriching experience to be a part of a team, demonstrating that disability will not stand in the way of people wanting to pursue such goals. It is also an excellent opportunity to network with people and gain a lot of social confidence, all while making many new friendships along the way.
Senior players and coaches will be available to run through drills and plays, giving tips and mentoring the new players. Following these training drills, there will be a chance to check out the sports at their competitive best with the senior matches to be held straight after.
Don’t think you can participate? We have a team of experts that can help adjust and fit equipment on to your chair so you can participate!
