Community sports champion, Paul Kennedy (Glenorchy FC Coach) will share his passion for inclusive and grass-roots sport as an enabler of confidence, fitness and social connection. Those who have heard Paul speak, know he’ll both educate and challenge any norm or attitude that excludes participation for any individual to develop and thrive through sport.
Also, inclusive, disability sport administrator Belinda Kitto, CEO of New Horizons Tasmania, will share insight to the program and partnership that led to the development of the state’s Intellectually Disabled Team that represents us at the National Cricket Inclusion Championships in Geelong each year. Belinda has also been a leader in the Tasmanian AFL Inclusion space, working with AFL Tas since 2014 to co-ordinate and manage a representative team, and last year as one of a committee who pitched for, and then hosted the National AFL Inclusion Carnival in Launceston.
