About Halberg AllSports
Halberg AllSports is the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation's community programme to enhance the lives of physically disabled young people by enabling them to participate in sport and recreation. The programme carries the Foundation's work through to areas where it will truly make a difference - in the community, the school-ground and the family home. The core work of the programme includes:
|Halberg Disability Sport Advisers
The Halberg Disability Sport Foundation employs nine Disability Sport Advisers (DSAs). These dedicated, highly skilled, expert field staff to support the Halberg AllSports programme throughout New Zealand. Please don't hesitate to contact our DSAs with any questions you have about getting involved in disability sport in your region.
|Halberg No Exceptions Training 'NET'
The Foundation provides 'NET' a training course on adapting sport to include physically disabled New Zealanders. The aim of a Halberg NET is to increase the knowledge and skills of teachers and sport deliverers to give them the confidence and resources to deliver quality sporting opportunities to physically disabled people.

|Sports Club Finder
The Halberg AllSports website aims to be a 'one stop information shop' for physically disabled young people and their families. We have an online Sports Club Finder tool to match your sport and recreation interests and needs to existing programmes. If you are or know of an accessible sports club that isn't yet registered on our AllSports Club Finder Page, don't hesitate to fill out a Club Form so we can get you listed!
The AllSports Activity Fund provides physically disabled young people with grants to help overcome the financial barriers that prevent them from participating in sport. For more information or to apply for a grant click here.
|Halberg Junior Disability Games
The Foundation hosts the Halberg Junior Disability Games where regional teams from around New Zealand descend on Cambridge for a national three day sports competition. The Games provide participants with the opportunity to compete against other young people with similar impairments in a range of sports. For more information click here.
Halberg partners with established sports organisations and clubs to create 'Have-a-Go' days and disability sport days at clubs, schools and in communities. They aim to introduce physically disabled young people to new sports and establish on-going adapted programmes.
