Show Notes

Sport has so many benefits: it brings communities together, it gets you moving, it’s a way to meet new people and to push yourself to find your personal best. In a world where a lot of people spend a lot of time sitting and looking at screens, sport’s not a bad habit to get into. 

So how do we make sure everybody can do that?  In this episode we’re talking about making sport inclusive for people of all abilities. 

We’ll see what we can learn from AFL Queensland’s Inclusion Team off the back of their spectacular exhibition game on the Sunshine Coast. 

We’ll find out about wheelchair sports club The Suncoast Spinners, including their work in reverse inclusion - getting mainstream players involved in, and enthusiastic about, disability sports like wheelchair basketball.

And Dr Ian Dutia is a researcher with the University of Queensland who has a particular focus on athletes with disability.  He says there are so many benefits in getting everybody involved in sport.
