Inclusive and personal approach

As a small non-profit organisation, we have a personal, flexible and inclusive approach, ensuring that we meet individual needs.  Through our range of diversified sport and recreation programs for children, adults and seniors, we offer choice and a tailored experience across all life stages.  The social nature of our programs help people of all abilities - from beginners through to more experienced and elite athletes - to improve their physical health, while also strengthening their social connections. 

Our programs are for all members of the community – regardless of their religion, age, gender, cultural background, sexual orientation or economic circumstances.
