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.
