Disabilities

WIRAC is committed to extending opportunities to everybody no matter what goals and abilities you have. WIRAC links with schools, community groups and local government bodies to promote and increase more opportunities for our community.

Sports abilities has been designed to offer a chance for people with disabilities to interact with each other while undertaking a physical activity. Our qualified and experienced Special Needs Swimming Instructors teach adults and children with disabilities to swim and exercise in the water.

The YMCA Swimathon is the main fundraising event of the year for people with disabilities. The efforts of the community of Warwick has allowed for the purchase of a new pool hoist. An aquatic fun day is held each year in conjunction with Swimming Queensland. These days are designed for children and adults with a disability to enjoy fun water activities and gain aquatic skills and confidence, in a relaxed and safe environment.

Term 4 commences from Tue 3 Oct

WIRAC moves into the busy part of the year now and with the warmer weather comes school swimming programs as well as greater use of the pool by the local community. WIRAC does host some school swimming carnivals during the term so make sure you check the times on your next visit. Weekends will be busy as well but the Centre is open longer so come and enjoy a swim with the family.

Rockwall times are Wednesdays from 4.30 to 5.30pm and term programs are back including Netball (Mon & Tue nights), Basketball (Wed night) and Futsal (Thu night). Taekwondo is on four afternoons per week and this term will see the introduction of the Regional Basketball Competition so you can watch some basketball on Saturday nights – go to http://bigq.com.au/ for more details.

WIRAC celebrates its third year of YMCA management in November so everyone is invited to come and celebrate with us from 3-5 November (click here for more details).
