Athlete development and talent ID

Many of Australia’s elite athletes with a disability started their sporting careers as junior competitors in events organised by Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association, or were ‘talent spotted’ at one of our come and try days.

Our athlete development and talent identification programs include:

  • Junior Development Program – a squad-based program that supports promising young athletes with a disability striving to achieve in sport
  • Development clinics and programs  (see sport-specific pages for details of development initiatives)
