February Update from AAA Play 

At AAA Play, we are blown away by the number, and variety, of all abilities programs across Victoria. In 2020 there are more than ever, thanks to our wonderful stakeholders - State Sporting Associations, Local Governments, Regional Sports Assemblies and other peak bodies.

We can't believe it's the end of February already though - the year is flying past! We've been busy connecting with our wonderful partners and working to make our website more accessible than ever before - check out the new feedback button below for starters. 

If however, your new years resolution to get active needs a kick start (like us) because you've been busy smashing other goals, then now is the time! Have a look at the huge range of programs below, or jump onto our website and find an activity close to you here. Enter your postcode and all the programs in your area will come up.

In the Spotlight

Looking forward: Goalball is back for 2020!

Sometimes quite aptly described as blindfolded reverse dodgeball, Goalball is an internationally recognised sport relying on hearing and teamwork. Although designed as a sport for blind and vision impaired people, the use of blindfolds has the unique appeal of putting everyone on a level playing field, regardless of eyesight. Check out how you can get involved below!

Goalball Victoria is busily preparing for a brand new year, with all programs kicking off in March. If you want to give it a go, Click here for all the info about their Come & Try day on Saturday 14th March.

There is also an Under 15s Program (Juniors) and an Autumn League (Seniors) running from March until May.

Looking back: AAA Play Feedback button

This month, our new orange Feedback Button went live! It allows website users to let us know about their experience in real time. Users can tell us what we're doing well or not so well, if they want different sports in their area, and what else we can do to continue to enable everyone to have the opportunity to play sport near them.

Click here, and click the orange button on the right of your screen to have your say!

We also had the opportunity to talk about the feedback button and more of AAA Play's recent updates at the Sport and Rec Victoria Inclusion and Diversity Community of Practice. It was an awesome day full of amazing programs that are being run across Victoria and we left feeling very inspired.
