YMCA Wangaratta, Wangaratta City Football Club and Sport North East joined forces to deliver an All Abilities Futsal program in late 2018. The program created a space for people of all abilities to enjoy the sport, including existing players, people new to the sport or people living with a disability.

The program ran successfully from October to December 2018 based on a flexible 'drop-in' strcuture, which allowed participants to attend as many sesssions as they want. Player were split into two teams to play against each other in an hour long match, with rest breaks scheduled during play. Players also had the opportunity to referee and the activity was complimented by a social opportunity to have a drink in the cafe at the end of the game. The result was a well rounded opportunity for everyone to be involved in a capactiy to suit them, creating a fun, active and social environment.

Dates for the next All Abilities Futsal for 2019 are still being finalised. If you would like to particpate, expressions of interest are encouraged by contacting Sport North East on 03 5721 0200 or visit ​http://www.sportnortheast.com.au/futsal/
