Note: Grampians Giants training and matches has been postponed until 31st May in line with recent advice from AFL Victoria.
FIDA football teams for players with intellectual disability across the West are gearing up for Season 2020 of the Victorian FIDA Football League (VFFL) Western Country Conference.
The Grampians Giants invite anyone interested in joining the team to get in touch or come down to a training session to have a go, meet the players, coaches and support staff. No footy experience needed.
The Giants are a mixed gender football team for players with an intellectual disability who are generally aged between 14-40 years old. They compete against teams from Ballarat, Hamilton, Warrnambool and the Wimmera.
Giants players travel from in and around the Ararat and Stawell townships with weekly training on a Friday afternoon, 4:30pm-5:30pm alternating between the two towns. They play approximately five home and away rounds plus a one day finals carnival from April to August.
First training for 2020
Friday 28th February at North Park Oval, Stawell or Friday 6 March at Alexandra Oval, Ararat.
