Team Volunteering

There is an exciting opportunity to have your child's team participate in a morning of gymnastics or sport with Sydney Friendship Circle!

The Friendship Circle works to bring together young people with and without disability in engaging recreational and social settings. We are currently looking for a sporting team to volunteer to engage in a morning of ball games or Gymnastics with a group of children with special needs. This is a great one-off team building activity to help other children with special needs and the team would benefit as well possibly even more than their buddies. No previous experience required.

Time: Select Sunday mornings - 10:00 to approx 12:00
Location: Sport - Private home in Rose Bay
Gymnastics - Mizrachi Hall.
