Blind Sports Australia is the national governing body for blind and vision-impaired sport in Australia,
and it is the international representative to the International Blind Sports Federation (IBSA). 


Together, these organisations seek to work in the best interests of blind and vision-impaired
participants to keep blind sports strong and healthy at all levels, both on and off the arena of sport.

Blind Sports Australia has three main roles:

• To promote blind sports to all members of the community as a worthwhile activity to
increase social inclusion and for a sustainable healthy lifestyle

• To increase the participation in blind sports by all the blind community regardless of age or
severity of vision impairment

• To advocate on behalf of its members at local, national and international level


Our membership responsibilities fall into two discrete groups.

  • The first are our State and Territory members.
  • The second are our National Sporting bodies for specific sporting disciplines.
