Victoria wants to showcase her talent at the 2019 Invacare Wheelchair Aussie Rules National Carnival – Disability Sports Australia


“The first game I played was at the carnival last year. I grew up playing football, and at age 22 suffered a spinal injury and was forced to stop. I saw a photo of the Nationals from 2016 and contacted AFL Victoria. I tried and, fortunately, got a place in the national team. “

Louis recalls that the tournament was very competitive. Despite the fact that friendly relations are established at the carnival, the rivalry has already begun. Louis and the Victorian team have targeted a team that has held the title of national champions for the past three years.

“South Australia have been a team that needs to be defeated, so hopefully this year we will be able to knock them out on home soil.”

The 8 athletes selected to represent the Victorian side were selected manually from about 30 players, all of whom were VWFL members. This elite team hopes to demonstrate excellent positioning thanks to improved chair skills and good ball handling on the court.

Louis is optimistic about the team’s path to success because of their growth and development, which can be seen in the training and preparation of the Victorian team.

“The weakness in our last national tournament was the goal-scoring, but we’ve been working on it for a year, and hopefully it will be strength.”

“It was quite difficult for the selectors to choose a team, and everyone trained very well, so I hope that this team will bring Victoria home.”

The Victorian team aims to participate in the Invacare National Carnival 2019 according to the rules of Australian wheelchairs and meet with 4 other teams from across the country. Good mood and confidence in the side are derived from the success of VWFL. Combining this additional competitive experience with the desire to create history and win your first ever gold medal, ensures that they advance deep into this year’s carnival.
