The 2015 Disability Sport & Recreation Festival is Back


Disability Sport and Recreation is an organisation whose mission is to provide and promote positive health outcomes for Victorians with disability through participation in sport and recreation.

For the past 6 years, we've celebrated International Day of People with a Disability at the DSR Festival.

The Festival supports and promotes an active and healthy lifestyle for people with disability.

On Thursday 3 December, from 10am to 3pm we will be holding our community exhibition and try-out day at Federation Square.

More than 30 exhibitors will be offering a range of inclusive and accessible programs, from modified cricket to table tennis.

With free try-outs and demonstrations, it's a great time to learn more about what's going on in the disability sport and recreation sector.

This family-friendly day features activities for all ages and abilities, and the popular Wheelchair Basketball Challenge starring sporting legends and Paralympians.

Throughout the same week, from 30 November to 6 December we will have our POP-IN program.

Several sport and recreation providers across Victoria will generously open their doors for people with disability, their families, friends and carers to 'pop-in' and try an activity.

For more information visit the official Festival website http://www.dsrf.org.au/ or follow Disability Sport and Recreation on social media.

Any questions? Contact Disability Sport & Recreation on (03) 9473 0133 or info@dsr.org.au.
