Youth Group

The Parafed Wellington Youth Group is for 5 – 18 year olds. 

It has been designed so young people can experience a range of opportunities in different sports, recreation and leisure activities.

Through our youth group we aim to provide pathways to sport, opportunities to compete at regional and national levels, social networks for our young members and their families, and improve disability awareness within sport.

Some of our programmes we undertake ourselves.

Some are integrated with mainstream sports. 

We have partnerships other sports organisations to assist our Youth Group.

All family members are most welcome. 

Youth Group is run by Parafed Wellington and we meet on 


1st Saturday and 3rd Sunday of each month


1-3 pm (subject to change)


Locations around the region


$40 for the year (which will give you full membership with Parafed Welllington)

El Rancho Camp

A few photos of our Youth Group member at our christmas camp at El Rancho.  It was a fabulous weekend and we all had a ball.  We tried archery, low ropes, spent hours on the waterslide, played mini-golf, paddle boated our way around the pond and island, feed the horses, and were followed by clover the pregnant cat which had its kittens while we were at camp.  Who could ask for more!
