SANFL believes everyone should have the opportunity to be involved in footy! We are continuing to develop programs and pathways for people with disability. The focus of our programs is to get people active and increase participation. Our programs develop football skills while supporting players to gain confidence, build social skills and ultimately be socially included in the football community.
