Our team in the National Aussie Rules Championships are flying the Tassie flag with pride. Tasmania are sitting third on the ladder with two days play still to go.

The event is gaining wide media coverage and public exposure for the new sport invented by ParaQuads own Sports Development Coordinator, Kevin Faulkner.

We are looking forward to building on the teams success and growing the sport locally for all ages, gender and abilities.

Physical disABILITY Sports held the inaugural Camp ABILITY for children with physical disABILITIES over the weekend of the 19-21 February at Camp Clayton on the North West coast of Tasmania.
All though only small with seven children and parents from around the state attending as stay in campers and two visiting for the Saturday activities. The camp started on Friday night with a BBQ and get to know each other. Saturday’s activities started with Basketball, Boccia and Balloon soccer in the gym. It was fantastic to see all the kids joining no matter what their disability. After lunch we had a visit from Flocky the Kite man. He brought in kits for the kids to build and decorate their own kites. Then it was off to the oval to fly them. At one stage all nine kites were flying. After a bit of kite flying Flocky brought out his water bottle rockets. A big hit with the kids. The day finished off with some free time. After a dinner of pizza we settled down to watch Odd ball.
