The 2017 Illawarra Disability Sports Family Day is an exhibition of the range of sports organised and supported by Wheelchair Sports NSW. This multi-sport event is aimed at people with a physical disability and their families. This wide ranging sporting exhibition will give attendees the opportunity to experience the sports on offer at a participation level, that is, in a non-competitive, family friendly environment. This allows the freedom to find an activity you enjoy and/or show an aptitude for and be linked with the provider(s) of that activity in the Illawarra, South Coast and Southern Highlands regions. There will also be an opportunity for local sporting organisations to gain a greater understanding of inclusion and integration of athletes with a disability within their sport, breaking down barriers between people with a physical disability and the general population. The sports will include Archery, Tennis, Lawn Bowls, Table Tennis, Powerlifting, Basketball, Wheelchair rugby, Swimming, Fencing, Track racing and Hand-cycling.
