About us.

Sport4All is a collaboration between the Australian Government, Sports Australia and Get Skilled Access.

Sport4All’s purpose is to provide people with disability the opportunity to participate in club and school sports when, where and how they choose.

Get Skilled Access was founded by Paralympic Gold Medallist and Grand Slam champion Dylan Alcott. Get Skilled Access is a Disability-Owned Business Enterprise (DOBE), meaning we are managed and run by people with disability and people with lived experience of disability.

We know how big the Sport4All vision is, and with your help, we can work together to make it a reality.

Get involved.

Step 1

Take our inclusion scoreboard questionnaire

Complete our Inclusion Scoreboard questions for your school or club to find out your inclusion score. The scoreboard will let you know what areas of inclusion you will need to work on in our online learning.

Step 2

Complete our online learning course

Strengthen your inclusion skills by taking our online learning course. You can download or print the accompanying resources for each subject. They will help to remind you of what you have learnt and allow you to share it with your team.

Step 3

Put your learning into practice

Take what you have learnt back to your school or club and put it into practice. We are here to support you along the way!

In 2021 we are running the Sport4All pilot program to help Aussie grassroots sports clubs and schools become more inclusive.

“Sport is a really great medium for learning life lessons and skills. It also provides a way for people to focus their energy and self-regulate for improved mental and physical health. When the disability community is accepted alongside and into mainstream sports communities it can create healthier fewer toxic communities which value friendship as part of sports. Inclusive sports look like a community and discipline anyone can access whatever their capacity. It’s set up for variable capacities and the disability and mainstream communities overlap.”

“I love playing footy in the front paddock at home and I love to kick a torp. This year I am

playing with Hayden at the Kyneton Footy Club. Go Tigers.”

“Inclusive sport matters because it should not be a roadblock if you are disabled. The disability community wants the adrenalin rush when playing a sport just like everyone else. The best way for sports to be more inclusive is thinking a bit differently, like having more time for a free kick.”

Emily Costello

Sport is a great way to meet and bond with people. Disability or not, everyone should have that opportunity to be involved. Inclusive sport puts everyone on an equal platform based on their ability. If a person with a disability is fast enough to race against a person without a disability, then including them should be a no brainer.

Elvin Lam

“Sport is for EVERYONE. We all know our limit, however if we think we can do it, they should encourage us to join, or find any way make it accessible if possible. Inclusive sport to me means, I feel proud of myself if I achieve something and feel like I’m not disabled anymore.”

Ned Brewer-Maiga

“Inclusive sport is incredibly important. It matters because it gives everyone an opportunity to feel a part of something, included and connected which can be lost for a lot of people with disability. Inclusive sport to me, is sport that involves everyone and allows everyone to have fun and be competitive.”

Elise Muller

“What I love about sport is that it was the first platform where I moved from being the person with special needs to the person who was needed. It’s a channel for me to do what I need in a way that is socially acceptable. In Gunditjmara country we communicate by telling stories and playing sport, all the values you need can be taught through sport. Sport is malleable so everyone can fit into that structure.”

Mike Rolls

“Inclusive sport matters because It can be a big step to approach a sporting club when you want to get back into/begin a new sport. If it’s handled well and people are welcomed and included, it can have a significant positive impact on a person’s life and wellbeing. An inclusive sporting organisation would be one that actively promotes inclusion and accessibility both to people with a disability and to regular members.”

Oliver Hunter

“The great thing about sport is you can meet great people and build relationships. The passion we can have for sport both as a spectator and participant is incredible. I think the health and fitness improvements are hugely important. That’s what personally motivates me the most and why inclusive sport matters for PWD. Inclusive sport to me involves everyone feeling valued, having a positive experience and being empowered to dictate how they participate.”

“Inclusive sport matters to me because there is no I in team and everyone is included. Inclusive sport looks like one big happy family all together. I love sport because it keeps me fit and active, and I feel part of a team”

“Inclusive sport is so important not just so that someone feels as though they are part of that community but so that they don’t feel left out. Inclusive sport is when anyone regardless of their ability has the chance to just give it a go! Given the opportunity to just try a sport and given the resources to make that happen.”

Scott Harris

“Inclusive sport is important because each and every one of us, disability or able bodied, has the right to enjoy an active life with the possibility of participation in sport. Sport is a great way to socialise and bond with others and just because you live with a disability, should not mean that you miss out on that opportunity. Inclusive sport is everyone getting the same chances to play sport as abled bodied people.”

Jamal Abdulrahim

“Inclusive sport matters particularly for young people as it will inform the way a person views exercise and how they approach life. In my personal experience, not being included in team sports has made me better at working alone and being self-sufficient but has affected my ability to work effectively as a team.”
