"Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer."

The success of events of this magnitude are supported by over 300 volunteers who dedicate their time to come out and play a vital role to the competitions. The passion and dedication of volunteers helps to continue to build a legacy of inclusion of people with an intellectual disability in sport and society.

Thank you for making a difference.
