Inclusive Coaching (Sports CONNECT)

Sports CONNECT is an Australian Sports Commission initiative aimed at

Creating

Opportunities

Nationally through

Networks in

Education,

Classification and

Training.

It focuses on the inclusion of participants with a disability across all sporting activities.

Pony Club Australia and Riding for the Disabled Association Australia have formed an alliance under the Sports CONNECT banner to develop pathways and provide opportunities for riders with disabilities within both organizations. This will allow riders to participate in activities best suited to their needs

What are we trying to achieve through Sports CONNECT?

  • Provide support for riders seeking to join Pony Club or for current members who could benefit from rule exemption or gear modification.
  • Have a framework that allows us to act on an as needs basis with each individual request and situation.
  • Acknowledge and develop relationships with RDA State Offices and Centers

To find out how the Sports CONNECT initiatives can assist you contact your State or Territory Office. More detailed information on competition and the FEI discipline of Para Equestrian can be found on the RDAA website www.rda.org.au
