WADSA’s Juniors program is designed to provide the opportunity for young school aged individuals with a disability to be involved in a broad range of sport and active recreation in a variety of settings in the local community. In the past the program has focused mainly on Education Support Schools with the service provided. As the sector has evolved more and more children with disabilities, including those with high support needs, are being catered for in not only education support units and education support centres, but also mainstream schools and private schools. WADSA has evolved with this system providing support to all of these areas. WADSA offers in the juniors program include equipment, workshops, activity days, carnivals, holiday programs and specialised activities.

This program is designed to enthuse, develop skills and confidence and expose young people with high support needs to a range of activity options which they may not previously have considered. The result of the juniors program is a set of pathways for individuals to participate in the community, school sport options and in the disabled sports system should they so choose. There are disabled sport carnivals, School Sport WA carnivals, regional carnivals, state & participation championships, national and even international competitions, all of which have or will receive varying degrees of support from WADSA.

WADSA has supported over 2,500 school aged students.
