What is an Open Day?
An Open Day is your opportunity to find Para sport opportunities in your area, watch demonstrations, and get amongst the action yourself.
You’ll also have a chance to chat with Paralympians such as Mary Fisher, Sophie Pascoe, Corey Peters, other Para athletes and coaches and find out how you can get involved. A variety of Para sports will be included at each event such as Wheelchair Basketball, Para cycling, Boccia, Para athletics, and there’ll be lots more to see and do.
The Open Days are FREE to attend. During late 2017 we held Open Days in three locations including Wellington, New Plymouth and South Auckland. Thank you to everyone that came along, got involved and had a great time.
ACC and Paralympics New Zealand want to support and encourage disabled New Zealanders, your families and support people to get involved in Para sport and learn more about the opportunities available in your region.
We’re also keen to connect local Para sport providers with people interested in contributing to Para sport - every Para athlete’s success relies on a network of coaches, administrators and volunteers.
