Goalball

Goalball is an exciting team sport for athletes with a vision impairment and sighted players of all ages. Two teams of three blindfolded players throw a bell-ball towards their opponent’s goal, using their body to protect their own goal. The game requires team communication, coordination and strategic skills and offers many social and physical benefits as well.

Sporting Wheelies provides development opportunities for new players to improve their skill level and fitness at training sessions and competitions. Players can also compete in representative Goalball at state, national and international level, including the Paralympics.

Whilst sighted players can compete up to National level, a vision impairment classification is required to compete internationally.

State Teams Selection

The process of selecting members for the Queensland State Goalball Team is a rigorous one, which involves multiple stages and evaluations.

Only those who meet the high standards set by the team’s selectors are ultimately chosen to represent Queensland at the Australian National Goalball Championships.
