Disability & Inclusion Training

There are regular Disability and Additional Support Needs training opportunities for coaches and volunteers. New courses are due to be scheduled in 2021. See a previous example of Disability Inclusion Training here.

Disability Cricket

'Super 1s' cricket is a new exciting form of softball cricket for those with physical, learning visual/hearing impairments or additional supports needs (ASN) ranging between 12 and 25 years old. Super 1s welcomes and caters to all impairment groups as the program allows us to focus on the individual needs of our participants. The program has allowed participants to create new lasting friendships as well as allowing the group to be an active part in the community, develop their skill set and learn something new.
