Disabilities

WIRAC is committed to extending opportunities to everybody no matter what goals and abilities you have. WIRAC links with schools, community groups and local government bodies to promote and increase more opportunities for our community.

Sports abilities has been designed to offer a chance for people with disabilities to interact with each other while undertaking a physical activity. Our qualified and experienced Special Needs Swimming Instructors teach adults and children with disabilities to swim and exercise in the water.

The YMCA Swimathon is the main fundraising event of the year for people with disabilities. The efforts of the community of Warwick has allowed for the purchase of a new pool hoist. An aquatic fun day is held each year in conjunction with Swimming Queensland. These days are designed for children and adults with a disability to enjoy fun water activities and gain aquatic skills and confidence, in a relaxed and safe environment.

What’s Happening at WIRAC over Winter 2019

As Winter comes to Warwick, so does the urge to be active for the Southern Downs community. As a result of the low patronage of the pool, the Centre has modified hours of operation so please view the times of opening on our website and at the front door.

Over Winter, the Centre does offer the following activities and events to help keep you motivated about staying active and healthy.

These include:- FREE Winter Walking at WIRAC. If it is too cold, wet or windy, come and walk in our stadium from 6.30-8.30am each weekday. This is available for members and non-members during Winter. A lap of the courts is approximately 140metre so come along and stay dry as you walk indoors!

Term 2 ends on Friday the 28th and the Pool plant undergoes its biannual maintenance program during the first week of the school holidays. That means the pool will be closed from the 1st-7th July and re-open on Mon 8 July. All other programs and services will be available over this week.


For more information on any of these events or any of our activities, please call the Centre on 4661 7955 or find us on Facebook here. WIRAC is the Southern Downs one-stop destination for family fitness, sports activities and quality aquatic education!
