Parafed Bay of Plenty, in collaboration with Parafed Waikato and Parafed Gisborne, are excited to bring a Fun Youth Competition to our 2020 Festival. This competition is open to any youth aged 8-21 years with a physical disability.
The 3 regional teams will compete in three sports across the day, 3x3 Wheelchair Basketball, Boccia and Badminton.
Not all youth are required to compete in each sport, this is up to the individual to choose at time of registering.
This competition is about being active, part of a team and having fun! Bring your family and join the fun!
