Show Us You Can Play! is a series of uplifting stories of people with a disability who are living proof that participating in sport and recreation is within reach of us all, that is now launched in partnership with Victoria Together.
The episodes, created by Disability Sport & Recreation (DSR) , allow a deep insight into the athletes from sports including AFL Wheelchair, powerchair sports, lawn bowls, calisthenics, wheelchair rugby, blind cricket, and blind football (soccer).
Each episode shows us just how important education, inclusive attitudes, and mindset can be, driving home the idea, ‘You Can’t Be What You Can’t See’ which is a key theme for the whole series.
We are grateful for the access from Yasmina McGlone, Brendan Spencer, K&K Calisthenics, Ken Hanson, Luke David and Jason Lees in creating this campaign 🙏
Show Us You Can Play! Demonstrates just some of the stories of individuals who actively participate in sport and recreation and the impact that has had on them as people and their lives.
The series addresses the social isolation and mental health concerns that people with disability experience, to better understand and see the life-changing impact sport and recreation can have on people’s lives.
Through watching, sharing, and engaging with this series, we hope you will not only consider how to get involved – but inspire and uplift others who may benefit from a greater awareness of how our entire community can become more active.
The individual episodes can be viewed at:
Now, we want to want to hear your story!
DSR extends an open invitation to all Victorians with a disability, their friends and families, to submit short videos showing how they have been able to keep active at home or in their area in recent times.
