Blind Sports Australia (BSA) is a national sporting organisation for blind and vision impaired sport. BSA helps create pathways and opportunities for blind sports participation from grassroots community level, right up to elite competition at national and international level.

BSA is a not-for-profit organisation, a founding member of Paralympics Australia and the Australian Sporting Alliance for People with a Disability and is Australia's representative to the International Blind Sports Federation.
