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 February 2020

So the festive season has come and gone as has the New Year celebrations. It is back to reality for most of us with school commencing, back to work and no more holidays for a while. That being said, the team at WIRAC have come up with the Fitness (and fun) February which has a wide range of activities to keep you active, fit and healthy and provides the opportunity to meet some people and make new friends.

The big news is that we have brought back the 6 week Shred Challenge (New Year, New You SHRED) which was a huge success late last year. For just $99 you can compete to win a great cash prize and lose weight/tone up. Available for members and non-members.

There is loads of FREE STUFF as well including FREE Swimming Squad sessions, FREE Badminton, FREE Metafit classes and FREE Aqua Aerobic classes – note some t&c’s do apply.

Cancer Survivor Program returns, as does the Active Youth Program and our Wednesday nite Rockwall, Aussie Hoops Basketball, Netball and Futsal.

And if you have some friends who are just not sure what to do, then they can come and try the Y for just $20 for 20 days (t&c’s apply: only one voucher per person, should be new users only, must be 18yrs and above. Available for 20 consecutive days once started – must commence by 3 March 2020. Does not allow 24/7 access. Participants can use the pool, the gym and group fitness).
