AllSports – Halberg’s Community-Based Disability Sport Programme
AllSports is the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation’s community-based programme to enable physically disabled young people to participate in sport. AllSports also acts as a quality assurance mark - meaning if a community, club or event promotes its activities in partnership with AllSports, families can expect quality, inclusive and professional sporting opportunities. The AllSports programme has a number of components to help physically disabled young people to participate in sport, these include:
AllSports Disability Sport Coordinators
The Halberg Disability Sport Foundation employs nine dedicated field staff to support the AllSports programme throughout New Zealand.
AllSports Activity Fund
The Activity Fund provides physically disabled young people with grants to help overcome the financial barriers that prevent them from participating in sport. The AllSports Activity Fund is proudly supported by the Eagles Golfing Society of New Zealand.
Have-a-Go days are ‘open day’ events run in partnership with established sports organisations and clubs. They aim to introduce physically disabled young people to new sports and establish on-going adapted programmes.
AllSports Fundamental Movement Skills
AllSports uses existing Fundamental Movement Skills programmes to enable physically disabled young people to develop essential muscle, motor and movement skills. These skills are important for all young people – but even more so for those who may have not had the same opportunities to develop them.
AllSports Online www.allsports.org.nz
The AllSports website is a ‘one stop information shop’ for physically disabled young people and their families. It has a club finder tool to match their interests and eeds to existing sport opportunities around the country.
