Girls Win uses sport to help young women with a disability (ages 16 – 25) set short, medium and long-term goals. It empowers young women to think more positively about their future, how goal setting can develop their prospects for the future and engages young women in activities that keep the body and mind healthy to adopt a growth mind-set.
Our FREE weekly sessions combine a range of sports and physical activity with goal setting workshops, peer support group discussion and a physical challenge that will increase the confidence, independence and expand their friendship networks to reduce social isolation of young women with a disability.
Lots of other fun FREE opportunities including – TRIPS, RESIDENTIALS, FESTIVALS, WORK EXPERIENCE, APPRENTICESHIPS AND MORE …

Visually impaired (VI) rugby is modelled on traditional rugby and takes elements from both Union and League codes. Similar to touch rugby, the game is 7-a-side and the referee is very vocal, commentating on the game at all times to help all players understand where the ball is and what is happening. The ball itself contains ball bearings to give audible support to the players. The game contains 3v3 uncontested scrums and uncontested lineouts. There is no kicking in open play.
All our sports are fun and open to all age groups with the emphasis on sustainable enjoyment for participants.
