The four-week program brings children with disabilities together to learn some of the basic skills of cricket in a fun, safe and inclusive environment.
The launch of the program has seen over 20 children involved so far and has been a joint initiative between Valley, the Special Olympics and Lions Club Australia, with support offered from Queensland Cricket and GPS Rugby Club with who VDCC share their Ashgrove grounds with.
The Special Olympics team has provided training for coaches to run the sessions, while sponsorship from Lions Club Australia has meant participants do not need to pay to be involved in the program.
The program is giving all children the opportunity to enjoy cricket, while improving fitness and making new friends, with a long-term goal of establishing a VDCC All Abilities team.
Positions in the VDCC All Abilities program are still available. Contact Karen Willis for more information.
Well done Valleys for providing opportunities for all Queenslanders so that cricket can be a sport for all!
