South Australian Blind Sporting Clubs

Blind Sports Awareness Program

SA Blind Sports was awarded a Sport4Everyone grant to provide weekly sporting opportunities for the vision impaired. In addition to this, they visit a number of mainstream schools and sporting clubs throughout SA to assist and educate teachers and students through participation using blindfolds and specialised equipment.

Due to the inability of Blind or vision impaired individuals to be able to participate in many mainstream sports and a lack of public understanding of how to modify sports, many deviate away from sports participation – using this grant Blind Sports SA will be able to fund the admin, travel and coaches required to deliver projects and educate communities on how to modify mainstreams sport to accommodate for visually impaired people.
