Our Make Your Move program aims to provide vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals from targeted community groups with the opportunity to participate in flexible, community-based sport and physical activity projects to increase acceptance of diversity, build inclusive communities, and assist vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals and families to develop social links.
The program will deliver six sessions per week within the school term, repeated up to three times a year in the Perth South Metropolitan area as well as one school holiday program per year. Program activities may include swimming and water safety (female only sessions available), self defence, dance and aerobics, walking, ten pin bowling and lawn bowls and team sports such as football, basketball, soccer, tennis and indoor volleyball, to name a few.
