 July Update from AAA Play 
 
Winter is coming to an end, so if you're not already, it's time to find an activity, go outside and start getting some sunshine. A handful of amazing all abilities activities are waiting to be enjoyed outdoors thanks to some new opportunities initiated by our friends, SNAPP, Softball Australia, VicHealth, Bowls Victoria, and South Gisborne Tennis Club. And they're not the only ones striving to provide better programs for people with all abilities...
  • Thanks to Fishcare, Fishing for All Abilities clinics will deliver more programs
  • It's the perfect season to play outdoor frisbee with Ultimate Frisbee, and
  • With access to an indoor ice-rink, the AAA Play Ambassadors are slicing through the ice in any weather!

In the Spotlight

Looking Back: All Abilities Clinics - Fishing is for EVERYONE!

AAA Play and a host of remarkable partners will be working with Fishcare Victoria to develop and trial a structured program to deliver 100 ‘fishing for all abilities clinics’ in the Kingston, Bayside, Hobsons Bay, and Port Philip Council areas.

This exciting new initiative is thanks to $127,200 secured by Fishcare Victoria over two years for their ‘All Ability Clinics - Fishing is for EVERYONE!’ program, which will increase accessibility for both metro and regional areas.
