AllPlay was established to create opportunities for all children to play sport, including the one in five children who experience developmental challenges or disability.
On the AllPlay Footy website you’ll find information, practical tips and strategies, footy stories and videos for coaches, clubs, health professionals, parents and players of all abilities. These strategies have been developed using the best available evidence and by talking to people in the community, including individuals with disabilities, families, coaches, and experts.
AFL National Inclusion Carnival
The AFL National Inclusion Carnival is an annual representative carnival for athletes with an intellectual disability, with every state and territory represented. The carnival not only provides Australia’s most talented footballers the chance to represent their State/Territory, but is also an opportunity for personal development and growth as a leader within their community.
Through partnership between AFL Northern Territory (AFLNT) and Total Recreation the Northern Territory competed at the National AFL Inclusion Carnival for the very first time in 2017. The players found the experience very rewarding, worthwhile and enjoyable as they formed a close bond while playing some impressive football together.
In 2019 the first come and try night will be held on Tuesday 19 March at TIO Stadium, Darwin from 5pm - 7pm.
Football experience: intermediate – advanced
Disability: intellectual impairment or those men who require education support
