Wheelchair Sports NSW (WS NSW) provides sporting opportunities to people with a physical disability through sporting events and programs within NSW. The vision of WS NSW is to enrich the lives of people with a disability through participation in sport.

The major objective for WS NSW at the Illawarra Disability Sports Family Day is to increase awareness and create opportunities for individuals with a disability to participate in sport event and programs. 

The 2017 Illawarra Disability Sports Family Day invited the general public are invited to come and try some sport and recreation opportunities similar to those the Paralympians demonstrated to the Australian public through September at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games.

This inclusive participation encourages a level playing field for ALL, and can be seen as a powerful motivator for community action into the future as well as the support other sporting codes.

Stay tuned for information concerning the upcoming 2019 expo!
