Blind Sports Australia is the national governing body for blind and vision impaired sport in Australia, and it is the international representative to the international Blind Sports Federation (IBSA). Blind Sports Australia oversees the local and state levels of blind and vision impaired sport through its members.
Together, these organisations seek to work in the best interests of blind and vision impaired participants to keep it strong and healthy at all levels, both on and off the arena of sport.
Blind Sports Australia has three main roles:
• To promote blind sports to all members of the community as a worthwhile activity to increase social inclusion and for a sustainable healthy lifestyle
• To increase the participation in blind sports by all the blind community regardless of age or severity of vision impairment
• To advocate on behalf of its members at local, national and international level
Our vision is for Blind Sport Australia to be a leader in blind sport locally, nationally and internationally, and we seek to be accepted as a leader in the disabled sport community. We want to grow interest and participation in blind sports.
