Disability Program

AFL Sydney Disability Program

Information about the AFL Sydney Disability Program for 2020 will be available soon.

In 2019 we had six clubs from the AFL Sydney competition involved in the Disability Program which invites children with disabilities to play Australian Football. The program is on the lookout for highly mobile participants and is open to both boys and girls ages 9-16 years old.

The program is suitable for participants with (but not limited to):

  • – Autism
  • – Fragile X Syndrome
  • – Down Syndrome
  • – Cerebral Palsy

AFL Sydney is open to hearing from everyone with a disability. If your disability is not listed above, please reach out to nicole.greentree@afl.com.au to discuss.  Children with various other physical and intellectual impairments are welcome to be a part of the program.

With a focus on fun and skills development, the inaugural AFL Sydney Disability Program will look to provide junior participants with an opportunity to play Australian Football with their peers in a safe and inclusive environment.

As the AFL NSW/ACT Rams Inclusion side is going from strength to strength in the National AFL Inclusion Carnival, the program will also look to provide a talent pathway for the younger generation of Australian Football players with an intellectual disability.

If you have any questions about the program please contact nicole.greentree@afl.com.au
