Summer is slowly drawing to a close, which means that the footy season is almost upon us for 2014. GippSport is currently seeking expressions of interest from people interested in having a kick of footy throughout the year.
Our regional all abilities side, Gippsland Power All Abilities Footy team, will be based out of Warragul again for 2014. Our team plays in the AFL VIC Football Integration Development Association (FIDA) league against other all abilities sides. Players are required to be 14 years of age of older, the rules are modified to provide an opportunity for any level of skill to be able to participate in this fun format of footy. FIDA will be partnering with GippSport to run a series of Special School & service provider clinics over the month of March to both raise interest and seek players to represent Gippsland Power all abilities footy team. Please contact Access for All Abilities Program Manager Dan Poynton for more information HERE.
We are planning to have a practice game on Sunday 30th March versus Sandown Park, the Power all abilities side will have two training sessions before this match at Western Park Warragul on Thursday 20th & 27th of March. Training will be from 5-6pm.
GippSport is also seeking expressions of interest from Football Netball clubs across the region who are interested in providing an opportunity for people with disabilities to get involved in their club. This may involve hosting a series of come & try or training sessions, or assisting people take up volunteer roles within the club. Again, please contact Dan for information.
