Little Athletics NSW recognises that people with a disability have the same rights to equality as the rest of the community and that people with a disability become involved in sport for exactly the same reasons as their able-bodied peers.
We aim to provide an inclusive environment in which barriers to involvement are removed and all people with a disability feel welcome and comfortable to participate.
Furthermore, we believe that it is the responsibility of all affiliated Little Athletics centres to make a reasonable effort to accommodate people with a disability. As such, Little Athletics NSW is committed to providing relevant advice, support, resources and training to assist in this process.
Little Athletics NSW will be producing a series of fact sheets to assist centre volunteers to successfully cater for athletes with various disabilities.
The first four fact sheets in the series can be downloaded from the links below:
